Redknapp: No issue with Spurs

Queens Park Rangers boss Harry Redknapp says he has "no problem" with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy and will happily have a drink with Andre Villas-Boas.

Last Updated: 12/01/13 at 11:54 Post Comment

Redknapp, who took over at Queens Park Rangers in November, will face Spurs for the first time since being sacked in the Premier League at Loftus Road on Saturday.

The 65-year-old led Spurs to two top-four finishes in three years, and despite being axed by the chairman, Redknapp said he holds no grudges.

"If I see Daniel, I'll shake his hand, no problem," he said.

"On the day I started at QPR, the first call I got was from Daniel wishing me luck.

"What's happened has happened and is in the past. He is the chairman, he decided he wanted a change of direction with regard to the manager and that's that.

"I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Spurs but now my focus is to get three points for Rangers when we play them because we are in a lot of trouble at the bottom of the table."

A struggling QPR sit just five points adrift of safety going into the weekend's game, with former side Spurs chasing Champions League qualification under current manager Villas-Boas.

Redknapp added: "I don't have a relationship with Villas-Boas but then I don't have a relationship with any other manager in the Premier League.

"I don't socialise with him, he's gone to Tottenham and done a great job. What's the problem? I've got no problem with him at all.

"If I had something bad to say about him I'd say it, but I don't know him.

"I'll shake his hand after the game and invite him in for a drink, whatever

the result. I don't have any problems with him. He seems a nice guy.

"I won't be thinking 'it's Tottenham, we have to beat them'. QPR are my club

now, I'm not interested in Tottenham."

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.
