Ex-Spurs manager Harry Redknapp was crowned winner of ITV’s ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’ on Sunday night as over 11 million tuned in to watch his coronation as ‘King of the Jungle’ but, while many surely applauded the 71-year-old for surviving three weeks on the reality show, Arsenal fans took it as an opportunity to have a dig at their London rivals.
Redknapp was at the White Hart Lane helm for four years between 2008 and 2012, in which he was credited with helping to turn Luka Modric into the star he is today, after moving the Croatian further upfield – the Ballon d’Or winner stated in his acceptance speech that his former boss had a huge impact on his becoming of a world-class midfielder.
However, there a few claims to success besides this for the cockney as the closest he got to a trophy with the Lilywhites was when he guided them to a Football League Cup runners-up place in 2008/09.
Gunners fans, still revelling in their side’s north London derby victory, took to Twitter to crack a few jokes – here’s the best of the reaction…
Harry Redknapp just won I’m a celeb. Expecting a Tottenham parade soon…
