HARRY Redknapp admitted he was desperate to watch Cherries when the Premier League returns to action – and even joked about using the art of disguise to get into grounds.

Eddie Howe’s men are set to host Crystal Palace in their first game back, set to be played at Dean Court on Saturday, June 20.

And with fixtures to be contested behind closed doors due to the coronavirus pandemic, former Cherries boss Redknapp joked he was eager to get in, in any way possible.

Asked on Capital Breakfast what it had been like with no football, Redknapp replied: “Well, yeah, I’ve missed it badly and I’m still trying to find a way where I might be able to get in to watch Bournemouth play their first game.

“Whether I go dressed up as a steward or as the club mascot, I’m trying to think about whether I can get in as a mascot!”
