Harry Redknapp's future at Tottenham is still in jeopardy despite the man himself quashing rumours he could be about to leave the club.
A number of reports in Wednesday's press have stressed the 65-year-old could be without a club by the end of the day even though Redknapp reacted to himself trending on Twitter, with rumours circulating he had resigned.
The Spurs boss told ESPN on Tuesday night: "No, I haven't resigned, and I have no idea why it is being suggested that I have resigned.
"This is an outrage; an absolute liberty for people to be putting around this kind of rumour on the internet. It is not true, there is not a chance I will resign. Why should I? I have a year left on my contract."
But Lilywhites chairman Daniel Levy is mulling over whether to sack the club's most successful manager in recent years, with Everton manager David Moyes favourite to replace Redknapp.
Redknapp and Levy in happier times
The former Portsmouth coach's contract expires in June 2013, and in his role as a pundit for the BBC on Euro 2012, he has made a number of thinly veiled remarks hinting at his disenchantment at not being made a new offer.
And in an interview last week, Redknapp stated: "You don't let players run into the last year of their contract if you think they're any good and you don't let managers run into the last year of their contract if you think they're any good."
It is unlikely Redknapp will resign from the post when he would be compensated for the last year on his contract, but his stock is not as great as it was at the start of an auspicious 2012.
Acquitted of tax fraud charges on 8 February, later that day Fabio Capello resigned from the England national team post, making Redknapp the hot favourite for the role.
And although Spurs superbly thrashed Newcastle United 5-0 three days later, they went on a poor spell of form, losing three Premier League matches in succession and not winning a league game in nearly two months, as they nosedived from third to fifth.
Spurs were also humiliated in the FA Cup semi-final when Chelsea beat them 5-1 at Wembley, scuppering hopes of their first piece of silverware under Redknapp.
Tottenham eventually finished fourth - a Champions League qualifying berth - but will not participate in the competition after Chelsea won the trophy, taking up the fourth English spot.
Redknapp's annus horribilis continued when he was overlooked for the England job in favour of Roy Hodgson, as it emerged he was the first choice of just one of the Football Association's four-man panel - general secretary Alex Horne.
He joined Tottenham from Portsmouth in October 2008, after Levy sacked Juande Ramos following a winless start to the Premier League campaign.
