Harry Redknapp believes it “would be unfair” to relegate clubs on varying points per game methods, should the Premier League not be completed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The former AFC Bournemouth boss, who has managed the likes of West Ham, Tottenham and Portsmouth in the top flight, believes taking away the run-in and using different calculations to determine relegation is “impossible to judge”.

Resulting the campaign using a points per game system would see Norwich, Aston Villa and Cherries drop to the Championship. The other method is weighted points per game – taking into account home and away form – which would see Cherries survive and West Ham go down. But Redknapp believes sides should not suffer if the campaign cannot be completed.

Redknapp said: “I really can’t see any[methods] of them as being fair. We have not finished the season. To just suddenly wipe it away and go ‘well okay, we are going to do points’. Who can pick football results? I enjoy picking football on a Saturday and watching the results coming through and having a little bit of interest. I can never get them right. Who can judge how football results are going to finish up? I think both of those scenarios are impossible to judge. I can’t see that being a fair way.”

“I can’t see that you could relegate. The two teams I wouldn’t want to see go down are West Ham and Bournemouth to start with. From my personal point of view. But I would think it would be unfair to relegate any of those teams (using points methods).”
