Harry Redknapp facing sack if QPR lose to Manchester United
Redknapp 6/4 favourite on the Premier League Sack Race market after a string of away defeats
January 15th, 2015
It appears that Tony Fernandes is running out of patience with Harry Redknapp at Loftus Road, with the latter reportedly a game away from the sack.
Defeat against Manchester United this weekend could spell the end of a difficult tenure at Rangers according to reports in the Daily Mirror, while the bookies make Redknapp the 6/4 favourite on the Premier League Sack Race market.
Rangers sit 19th in the table, with a return of just 19 points from 21 games played and all of those points have come at home, with the Hoops suffering ten straight defeats on the road.
Redknapp said after Saturday’s 2-1 reverse against QPR: ” I thought we were right in the game and that Burnley had lost their way a bit and then we have given an horrendous goal away. It was a shocking second goal, we have to defend better in that situation and it cost us dearly.
“The conditions weren’t easy but defenders have to defend. For the first goal we had three men around their guy – we’re not talking about Lionel Messi are we – and he’s gone past three of us far too easy.
“The second goal was poor defending too. The ball dropped between two of us [Richard Dunne and Steven Caulker] and you have got to clear the ball or get your body in the way, you’ve got to be stronger, you can’t give goals away like that.”
QPR face the Red Devils on Saturday and their home form has actually been decent this term although a defeat against a side gunning for the Champions League could spell the end for Redknapp.
