Ever since Fabio Capello’s departure from the Three Lions top job in February, Redknapp has been the bookies favourite to take over the role.
“If the FA have a candidate that they know is going to get the job, that is managing a mid-table Premier League side, why leave the popular choice hanging?” Collymore told Hawksbee and Jacobs.
“It’s unfair on Harry [Redknapp] and Daniel Levy who will be thinking about compensation, looking around for another manager and thinking about players for next season.
“If you have 2-3 candidates, find out if they are interested in the job and then approach the clubs straight away. The FA haven’t done that and in the end it might come back to haunt them.”
