HARRY MAY SNUB TELLY.

Byline: DARREN LEWIS

HARRY REDKNAPP last night vowed to enforce a Sir Alex Ferguson-style TV blackout if he is punished for criticising ref Mark . The FA could charge him today for claiming Clattenburg would collude with his assistants to get their story straight over Manchester United's controversial second goal on Saturday.

Redknapp said: "I've got no issues with the FA, but I wouldn't take it lying down.

"There's no way I'd do any more TV interviews. No chance. Don't bother asking me to speak to TV after a game again. I don't care if it's in the rules. I don't want to do it.

"I just want to get on the coach and go home. I don't expect a charge, but if they do I'll fight it all the way.

"The FA want it both ways. They want us to talk about the game, but not talk about it."

United boss Sir Alex has refused to speak to the BBC since the channel broadcast a controversial documentary about his son Jason six years ago.

Redknapp's explosive response yesterday came as it emerged the FA were studying tapes of his media interviews after the game as they decide whether to punish him.

United winger Nani scored on Saturday when Heurelho Gomes waited for Clattenburg to blow for a free-kick. It was only when the Tottenham keeper protested that linesman Simon Beck raised his flag.

On approaching Beck, Clattenburg dismissed every Spurs player but allowed United defender Rio Ferdinand to be party to their conversation.

The FA are particularly concerned that Redknapp appears to question Clattenburg's integrity.

But Redknapp hit back: "What I said is that when they get in their room - and I've said it before - they would always make sure that they sing from the same hymn sheet."
