Way contacted Redknapp after the 70-year-old former Tottenham Hotspur boss was sacked by Birmingham last month.

“I‘m still starting my journey in management and feel the opportunity to bring in someone like Harry to offer advice and pass on his knowledge is a no-brainer,” 37-year-old Way told the club website on Tuesday. (www.ytfc.net)

“There’s no pressure or long-term commitment from either side, but I‘m looking forward to having Harry at Huish Park and we welcome him to the club.”

Yeovil are 17th in League Two with three wins from their first 11 games.
