Jamie Redknapp plunged new depths of ridiculousness on Sunday afternoon when he refused to believe Arsenal’s second goal was over the line despite goal technology showing it was.
While Crystal Palace can rightly feel hard-done-by that Alexandre Lacazette’s handball wasn’t spotted in the build-up, to refuse to believe the ball is over the line despite technology designed to end this sort of debate once and for all, is just ridiculous.
To compound his error, he then added that that sort of goal wouldn’t be given during a match without tech.
It was an astounding bit of ‘analysis’. For the record, Redknapp reportedly earns around £32,000 per week from Sky Sports.
On Twitter, Arsenal fans couldn’t believe what they were hearing:
Despite goalline technology saying it did Jamie Redknapp says he's still not convinced the ball is over line.

Then Redknapp, talking about Arsenal's 2nd goal, ignores Milivojević pulling Lacazette for the handball.
Then he says he's not yet convinced it crossed the line.
THEN, despite seeing goal-line technology, he says that you can't give it in real time.
I have no words.

Jamie Redknapp really does have a problem with Arsenal he’s actially saying Auba’s goal wasn’t past the line and Goal Decision System says it was and he still said it wasn’t shouldn’t be on SS too biased
