Harry Redknapp: Braced for a busy summer of rebuilding at Loftus Road

The Rangers manager criticised the attitude of some of his squad after they signed off on two years of top-flight football with a 1-0 defeat at Liverpool, revealing he only wants those with the right mentality on the books next season.

"I want to put a team together that comes in every day looking forward to work," he said.

"If I couldn't do something in the summer and change it around then I wouldn't want to come back. I don't need the aggro of people coming in late, fining players every day.

"I don't need to come to work and have aggravation. I need a group who are pleased to play football, want to learn and take a bit of pride in what they do.

"You have people like Clint Hill and Shaun Derry who give everything. There is a good group, Rob Green is not a problem.

"There is a little group I need to shift and get some new blood in. It ain't going to be easy to shift players.

"I learned a lot from day one. I knew what we had here but we were short of quality. It's been a mismatch of a squad.

"We are looking at a different level now, we're not looking at top players. We're looking for players that can get you out of the Championship next year.

"It's not going to be easy, it's a tough division full of quality, big clubs - bigger clubs than QPR. We've got no divine right to come out of the league next year."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
