A few eyebrows may have been raised when it emerged that former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp would be appearing on ITV's I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

However, given that he has effectively retired from football management and it will land him a lucrative appearance fee, it's not altogether unsurprising either.

As well as Spurs the 71-year-old has steered the fortunes of a host of clubs, including West Ham, Portsmouth, Southampton and Queens Park Rangers.

He won the Intertoto Cup with the Hammers in 1999 and masterminded Pompey's 2008 FA Cup triumph, while his exploits with Spurs earned him a Manager of the Season award in 2010.

Goal takes a look at how much Redknapp is worth, what he will earn on I'm a Celebrity... and more.

What does Harry Redknapp earn?

Redknapp will have earned plenty of money during his career as a footballer and later as a football manager, but he is not currently employed in that realm.

His last job as a manager came to a conclusion in September 2017 when he parted ways with Birmingham City.

Redknapp said that he wasn't interested in money when he took the Birmingham job initially, stating that the challenge was what attracted him. He signed a one-year contract and it was reported that he would receive a bonus payment of £250,000 ($320,000) if he managed to keep the team in the Championship, but he was relieved of his position before he could achieve that aim.

Reports suggest that Redknapp stands to earn £500,000 ($640,000) for his appearance as a contestant on I'm a Celebrity..., a fee which would mean he will be one of the highest paid participants in the show's history.

As well as his work as a footballer and football manager, Redknapp has also worked as a pundit, appearing on Sky Sports and BT Sport. He recently appeared on the Rothco produced reality series 'The Toughest' in which he pit his wits against Gianluca Vialli as a fish-out-of-water managing a Gaelic football team.

Redknapp has also released an autobiography, called Always Managing (2013), and has a podcast called 'Harry's Game'.

His television appearances are not restricted to the world of football either - he appeared in a series of commercials for Nintendo Wii along with his family.

Like many people in the football industry, Redknapp has delved into the property market and he is a director of Pierfront Developments.

The business came in for criticism in 2017, with the Guardian reporting that plans to demolish a hotel and build luxury apartments was not well received.

How many social media followers does Harry Redknapp have?

It should be no surprise to learn that Redknapp is active on social media and has a presence on both Twitter and Facebook.

However, his Twitter profile is much more active and, at the time of writing, he boasts 219,000 followers on the platform.

Redknapp's official Facebook page, which has approximately 19,000 likes, appears to be dormant, with the last posts dating back to 2016.
