- Manchester United fans heckled Jamie Redknapp, calling him a ‘w****r’ on TV
- The former Liverpool man and fellow pundits struggled to hold their giggles
- The incident came during half-time in Man United’s 4-1 win over Chelsea
Jamie Redknapp and his fellow pundits were left giggling after Manchester United fans launched a foul-mouth taunt at him during Thursday’s live coverage.
During half-time analysis of Man United’s 4-1 win over Chelsea, home fans were heard yelling in the direction of the former Liverpool man – who was one of four people pitchside for Sky Sports.
Man United fans launched into a melodic rendition of ‘Jamie Redknapp you’re a w****r, you’re a w****r’, which left the 49-year-old giggling on live TV, alongside fellow pundits Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, Mary Earps and presenter Kelly Cates.
While Sky Sports stalwart Cates and the Manchester United and Lionesses goalkeeper Earps seemed to keep their composure for the live broadcast, Hasselbaink was very close to losing it completely, while Redknapp was seen struggling to contain his laughter, which came with Man United 2-0 up at the break.
The final score secured Manchester United enough points to secure Champions League qualification for next season, at the expense of Liverpool.

When Redknapp described Casemiro’s no-look pass as being in the style of departing Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino, Cates noted that the comparison would not be liked by the Manchester United fans.
To this, Redknapp replied: ‘I don’t care, I’ve taken enough stick tonight.’
Following yesterday’s win, Redknapp said that Erik ten Hag had ‘answered a lot of questions’ during his first season in charge of Manchester United.
He also said that Harry Kane should quit Tottenham – calling the north London side a ‘shambles’ – in favour of Manchester United.
