Sounds like he's in a bit of shit judging by what has been presented in court so far. What can he get if found guilty?
I reckon that's why he was aquitted.
Ever since the investigation began five years ago into deposits made by Mandaric into a Monaco bank account owned by Redknapp, the two men have been like a pair of strikers awaiting a cross from Aaron Lennon, wondering where it would go and would anyone get hurt.
