QPR have lost their first two matches without scoring a goal and are currently bottom of the table, prompting speculation about the future of their veteran manager.

However, the Rs boss has a contract which runs until the end of the season and it looks like he will get the opportunity to extend his stay at Loftus Road.

Despite the presence of several summer signings, QPR were hammered 4-0 at Tottenham on Sunday and Redknapp was booed by the visiting supporters for acknowledging the Spurs fans.

And reports on Tuesday morning even suggested that QPR were lining up Tim Sherwood, another former Tottenham boss, as a possible replacement for Redknapp.

However, it looks like the 67-year-old will be given plenty of time to bed in the new arrivals and attempt to lift QPR up the table.

Redknapp was unable to keep QPR in the top flight when he took charge during the 2012/13 season but took them back up at the first attempt when they beat Derby 1-0 in a dramatic play-off final in the spring.

Rangers chairman Tony Fernandes remains upbeat despite the two opening defeats and has been getting advice from an unlikely source.

He tweeted on Tuesday: “Just went to Downing Street for football advice. Wing back or simple 442? Ha ha.

“I’m smiling, we got good players, good manager, good spirit, good coaches and great fans.

“We love the club and bought all the players the manager wanted. Now up to the boys and Harry.”

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
