Richard Keys “smash it” girl is Jimmy Glass’ wife Louise

She dated Jamie Redknapp in early 1990s

The woman referred to as “it” by ex-Sky Sports presenter Richard Keys is the wife of ex-Carlisle United goalkeeper Jimmy Glass, according to The Sun.

Louise Glass, aged 38, dated Jamie Redknapp when he was a Bournemouth player. Keys quit after footage of him asking Redknapp if he had “smashed it” – meaning had sex with Louise – was leaked.

Louise said: “I was very upset by it. They were very nasty and unpleasant comments.”

After asking whether Redknapp had “smashed it”, Keys said: “Mind you, that’s a stupid question – if you were anywhere near it, you definitely smashed it.

“You could have gone round there any night and found Redknapp hanging out the back of it.”

Jimmy Glass is a Carlisle legend after scoring the goal that kept the club in the Football League in 1999. He retired from football in 2001 at the age of 27 and now runs a taxi business in Dorset.

The couple are said to be taking legal advice over Keys’ comments.

    Are the libel laws f-ed up enough that they’re getting “legal advice” ? Even if asking dumb questions about a colleague’s sex life is libelous, does Louise really want to go to court to tell us exactly how often she had sex with Redknapp to refute the “any night” allegation?
