Despite having to get up extra early to commute 200 miles a day from his home in Dorset to QPR's Harlington training complex, the former Portsmouth manager still makes time for his hobby.

Redknapp told the Daily Mail: "I'm a compulsive bird feeder. You'll see me out in the dead of winter at 5 am, filling up our feeders and tables."

Aside from the time commitment he makes to his winged friends, the 66-year-old also sacrifices quite a bit of money.

He added: "We have about 30 and I can easily spend 80 quid on bird food a fortnight in the pet shop.

"I won't leave for work until I've fed them - I hate to think of them going hungry. Bit mad, innit?"
