The former Hammers boss – still seething over ten-man Swansea’s late equaliser against the Hoops yesterday – told ClaretandHugh: ” The medical is fine, but the deal still has to be done.”
Twitter was alive last night with rumours that the Argentinian had indeed failed his medical but that is simply not true.
Redknapp said: “Everything is alright on the medical front but no it hasn’t happened yet – we’ll see. There’s no big rush.”
Asked by us whether he was considering other options Redknapp said: “We’re not sure what we are doing yet – that may be correct.
“To be honest after what happened late in the game yesterday I don’t even want to talk to my wife!”
