Jamie Redknapp has jumped to Mason Mount's defence for ignoring self-isolation guidelines by playing football with England team-mate Declan Rice.

The Chelsea midfielder was spotted at a football centre near Barnet on Sunday, despite the club's self-isolation advice after Callum Hudson-Odoi tested positive for Coronavirus last week, but Redknapp believes it's a mistake which Mount is not proud of, and will learn from.

“He's made a mistake,” Redknapp said on Sky Sports.

“He's a great kid, a really nice boy, well-educated, he's got a lovely family behind him. He's made a mistake, I remember making plenty of mistakes when I was his age.

“And I'm sure with Frank and everybody at the club, they'll stick by him. We've all done stupid things in our time. He is a brilliant young man, that's all I can say.

“We all want to get back to watching football and not sit here talking about something that's so serious but that's life, we just have to get on with it.

“He loves the game and that's the problem but as I say it was just the wrong time for him to do it.

“Knowing him, I've met him a few times, he'll feel so bad about what he's done. He's made a big mistake but there will be people all around the world who should be self-isolating that are not.

“So let's just forget about it now, he's made a mistake and everybody just moves on.”

Mason Mount has reportedly apologised to head coach Frank Lampard and Chelsea FC for his behaviour.
