Harry Redknapp: QPR manager staying at Loftus Road

Rangers owner Fernandes met Redknapp on Monday to discuss various aspects of the team's future, prompting speculation he may be set to depart Loftus Road.

However, Fernandes later insisted Redknapp will be staying on as manager after discussions with the 66-year-old former Tottenham boss.

"I have had a positive meeting with Harry," Fernandes said on QPR's website. "I don't think there was any point where he was thinking of not being with us and continuing this project he has embarked upon with a third of the season through.

"Harry is a football man and he knows what he wants in terms of players. We had a good discussion on the kind of players we want next season.

"Harry will not be forced to sell any players he wants to keep. We had a very good discussion on this.

"There are some players that we really want to keep and we will do our best to keep them. I think we will.

"It was a good meeting because we are all very clear on the timelines, we're very clear on what to do. We may not get everything we want but I am comforted by the fact we have a plan."

Redknapp, who replaced Mark Hughes in December, added: "It's been a disaster really, a really disappointing season for everyone - the owners, the staff, the fans; everyone associated to the club.

"We're going to give it a real good go next season though and hopefully get this club back to where it belongs.

"I've always said, so many times, how good the people are who own this club - they're different to anyone else I've worked for.

"They came in this morning and were so positive, when they could have been suicidal. They're backing us all - the management, the staff, everyone. It's unbelievable."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
