BT Sport have decided not to use Harry Redknapp as a pundit for their live broadcast of the FA Cup fifth round clash between Portsmouth and Arsenal due to concerns he may be the target of abuse from home fans, according to the Portsmouth News.

The League One club will host the Gunners at Fratton Park on Monday March 2 as the lowest-ranked side remaining in the competition, with the clash inevitably picked up for television coverage. 

Redknapp has worked frequently for BT Sport on their coverage of Premier League and continental matches in the past, as well as appearing as a pundit on a host of other shows.
