Harry Redknapp: Remains confident he can turn things around at QPR

Harry Redknapp: Remains confident he can turn things around at QPR

Rangers' survival chances appear increasingly bleak, with Redknapp's men still rock-bottom of the Premier League and seven points adrift of safety after defeat to Manchester United on Saturday.

But the former Portsmouth boss remains convinced he can turn things around and will not be discouraged by the expected abuse he will receive from the Saints fans at St Mary's on Saturday.

Redknapp, who turns 66 at the weekend, said: "It is my birthday next Saturday and I thought there is no better way to spend it than getting 90 minutes of abuse at Southampton.

"They'll all be calling me 'Scummer' for my time at Portsmouth. I thought that would be a great way to spend my birthday!"

He added of the battle for survival: "There are enough games left - it is still wide open.

"We have got to go to Villa, we have got to go to Reading and we have got Wigan here. I still fancy us.

"We've got nothing to lose, everyone thinks we are gone. But you can change it so quickly.

"At Portsmouth in 2006 I had a crap team and we got 20 points from 10 games and stayed up. It ain't impossible."

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.
