Redknapp: I know the score

The London side are 19th in the table, just two points off the bottom of the table and Redknapp was speaking in the wake of reports suggesting he might be fired if QPR are beaten at home by Manchester United on Saturday.

However, Redknapp thinks he retains the support of owner Tony Fernandes and suggested someone else behind the scenes might be happy to see his reign come to an end.

“Somebody is trying to cause me a problem here, by talking to the papers,” said Redknapp on Friday. “I know what the score is.

???I’m not silly, I’m very streetwise. Someone’s trying to cause me a problem, I’m sure.

“I wasn’t born yesterday. Someone has said something, but it’s not a problem.

“I’ve never had it before, I’ve never been at a club before where someone has said I’m going to get the sack. And I don’t see why, who puts it in the paper? Someone’s put it in the paper.

“If I win tomorrow it’s all forgotten. I’m not silly, there’s always someone trying to put the spoke in.

“They should check everyone’s mobile phones and find out. That’s the best way, it’s easy.”

Regarding his relationship with Fernandes, Redknapp said: ???I love Tony Fernandes and I don’t say that because I’m creeping up to him, it’s because he’s a great guy.

???And if he says to me ‘Harry, I’m going to go down a different route’, fine, that’s his choice, what can I do?

“You do your best, that’s all you do. If someone goes out, falls over the ball and concedes a goal, what can I do? You can only try your best and I’ve had a great time, and I want to continue doing it.

“I spoke to Tony yesterday, he’s not mentioned anything of that nature to me and, until he does, I’ll keep doing what I do.

“It’s up to other people at the club. It’s not easy, no-one’s pretending otherwise.”
