Brady blasts Redknapp

West Ham's vice-Chairman Karren Brady has accused Harry Redknapp of trying to unsettle Scott Parker.

Brady, speaking in her regular column for the Sun lashed out at the Tottenham manager after a derisory 7million bid for West Ham's vice-captain was rejected by the board.

"Harry Redknapp has introduced something into the transfer market I call Harry's Law," blasted Brady. "It goes: 'Do what I like, when I like, with whom I like.'

"Scott Parker grew unsettled by Spurs' clear interest in him even though West Ham joint-chairman David Sullivan stated he was not for sale. No permission to speak to Scott was requested or would have been given. But this was not good enough for Spurs who were convinced we would be pressured into selling.

"Daniel Levy - my friend, but obviously not a very good one - once ventured to me that business was all about principles and money. I told him he had failed in both on this occasion. "

Brady also revealed that rotund striker Benni McCarthy, who was dropped from South Africa's World Cup sqauad for being overweight has been nicknamed 'two Benni's' by club staff.

''Speak to any Brum City supporter and they're of the opinion that the Dirty old Men and their fluffer that now run your club almost ruined Brum.

Still, you can't call Gold, Suullivan and Brady inconsistent - whether its to do with their porn industry or their football club, they still publish gash.''

''Harry's law indeed, he is always going public about players and that lot from North London think they can dip into the Hammers playing staff at anytime and at non-market values! Especially as he has no money to spend from the board!''

''I don't get it. Spurs make a bid for a player... is that Harry's law? West Ham go public and tell the world about it... who is unsettling who?

Is she saying that Spurs have no right to bid for their players? Sounds like Brady's law to me...

The only one's still banging on about Scott Parker are West Ham. Looks to me like they are trying to start a bidding war. ''

''It's hardly fair to blame me 'cos you know I lost control of my own voice some time ago. That's why I'm always talking to the media and am the most quoted manager on every subject going. A day doesn't go by without me giving my opinion on every club and every player, and then I move on to international football, of which you know I have vast experience. So please don't criticise - I can't help it! ''

''Pot calling kettle black me thinks, I wonder how West Brom feel about us?

Sullivan announced that Spurs had bid for Parker, not Redknapp. All we had to say is he's not for sale or 20m cash, take it or leave it - but no, we have to announce everything via the media.''
