Harry Redknapp has sent his best wishes to England manager-elect Roy Hodgson.

Redknapp had been the overwhelming favourite to replace Fabio Capello prior to this summer's European Championships. However, it is Hodgson who will have talks with the Football Association after West Brom granted permission.

"No problem," Redknapp told BBC Sport. "I wish him [Hodgson] all the best. He's a great guy. I've got a great job here (at Spurs). I don't hold grudges. I've woken up in a great mood on the back of a great win yesterday (Sunday). I will be concentrating on Tottenham as I have done all along."

As news of the approach for Hodgson was confirmed on Sunday evening, Redknapp conceded his chance of coaching England had now gone.

"I can't see it (the England job) coming up for me now," Redknapp told The Times.

"Everyone else was saying I might get it but I never spoke to Daniel Levy (the Spurs chairman) about England."
