Former West Ham United manager Billy Bonds suggests that Harry Redknapp is lying about their fallout during their time at the club together back in the 1990s.

West Ham United legend Billy Bonds has claimed that Harry Redknapp has been "very liberal with the truth" in his autobiography.

The Queens Park Rangers boss recently released the book, in which he discussed at length his fallout with former Hammers manager Bonds during their time at Upton Park together.

However, Bonds has claimed that Redknapp has not been 100% accurate in his re-telling of the way the events panned out back in the 1990s.

"He has been very liberal with the truth but that's much as I expected," Bonds told

"For him to come out with what he said was disrespectful to the players and one or two of the staff who were there [at West Ham].

"I haven't spoken to him for 20 years. I find it quite pathetic that he comes out with stuff like that really."

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard also recently contradicted a claim from Redknapp that the pair exchanged texts over the England manager's job in 2012.
