Former Birmingham City manager Harry Redknapp has ruled out taking up a full-time advisory role at Sky Bet League Two club Yeovil Town according to talkSPORT.

The 70-year-old Londoner is currently out of work after being sacked by the Blues last month following a poor start to the season in the Sky Bet Championship.

Redknapp is thought to be ready to announce his retirement from the game although it had recently been reported that he could make the surprise decision to join Sky Bet League Two club Yeovil Town in an advisory role after being invited to work with The Glovers by manager Darren Way.

The former Portsmouth and Tottenham Hotspur boss has now clarified the situation and has confirmed that he will not be joining Yeovil Town on a full-time basis and will only look to attend occasional training sessions or watch the club in action at Huish Park from time-to-time.

Despite not being prepared to become a permanent employee of Yeovil Town, it is thought that Redknapp is more than willing to assist manager Way in his spare time and that arrangement could help both the young manager and his club flourish on the pitch in the long term.

Redknapp has no previous experience managing or coaching in English Football’s fourth tier with his time at AFC Bournemouth in the old Division Three being the lowest level in which he has worked.
