Former Pompey manager Harry Redknapp could face trial after denying two motoring offences.

He is accused of speeding in Poole, Dorset, in October last year and of failing in his duty to identify the driver of the vehicle.

Redknapp’s solicitor Jonathan Morrissey entered not guilty pleas on behalf of his client, who did not attend the hearing at Bournemouth Magistrates’ Court.

Charles Nightingale, prosecuting, said Mr Redknapp had told police he could not be sure whether he or his wife Sandra had been driving the vehicle at the time the offences are alleged to have been commited.

A trial has been listed for August 1, although the Crown Prosecution Service must decide whether or not it wishes to pursue the case.
