Kamara, popular for his amusing commentary on Soccer Saturday, thought he was about to show viewers how Redknapp went about his tactics.

However, Kamara was in for a shock when he caught Redknapp and Smith, his assistant at the time, compiling their bets for the day.

Harry said: ‘I'm in the office one day. Chris Kamara is outside, working for Sky, and he's outside my door - I don't know he's out there.

‘He goes: “we are now going to go in there...Harry's in there with Jim and are working out their set plays, their formations. This where they will be doing the real business - we're going to go in there and have a look”. 

‘He comes in, I'm reading the Racing Post and Jim's behind me - we were looking at bets for the day!’
