Harry Redknapp has called Jack Grealish “absolutely stupid” after he allegedly broke coronavirus lockdown rules.

An investigation has been launched after pictures surfaced online appearing to show Aston Villa captain Grealish following an incident in which a Range Rover crashed into parked cars.

West Midlands Police said they were called just before 10am on Sunday to the Dickens Heath area of Solihull, where the two parked cars suffered minor damage.

The force said the driver left his details with a member of the public before leaving on foot.

Images surfaced online on Sunday of a damaged white Range Rover as well as a picture that appeared to show the Villa midfielder in slippers and a bright blue hoodie.

Less than 24 hours before the incident, the 24-year-old launched a video appeal for people to stay at home during the Government-enforced lockdown.

“I have been his biggest fan,” Redknapp told ITV’s Good Morning Britain show.

“Every time I talk about him I say he should be in the England team.

“If I was a manager of the big teams I would buy him up.

“But this is no excuse. This is absolutely stupid.

“I can’t believe what he has done, he needs to be punished for sure.”
