The basic functionality doesn't work; see 
[[en:Category:Sports]] for example.

But there is also a more complex issue:
If Category:Sports is redirected to Category:Sport,
all the pages categorized into Category:Sports should 
be listed on page Category:Sport as if they had been 
categorized into Category:Sport in the first place.

Redirects in categories to work with the normal redirect
syntax.  However, this adds the redirected category to the
target category too.  If the extrea colon is added after the
bracket, as normally done to link to a category without
putting the current article into it, then the redirect does
not work.  (There is a similar problem with category links
in the history comment.)

Also, as already mentioned, if the category is redirected,
articles can still be assigned to it, but nobody will see
them as they will not so up in the category  that is the
redirect target.
