Tuesday's 2-0 defeat at Blackburn left Rangers 13 points behind second-placed Burnley with just 15 to play for.

Crucially, they are still nine points ahead of seventh-placed Brighton, but Redknapp knows a run of three games without a win is not the sort of form to take into the play-offs.

"We need a result and quickly," said the Rangers boss.

"We're still missing five or six players and that's really hurting us. We just need to get a result or two to get us into the play-offs.

"We're focused on making the play-offs now. We've got a big cushion but we need to go on a run to make sure we're heading into the play-offs with momentum."

Redknapp hopes to have Joey Barton, Clint Hill, Jermaine Jenas and Nedum Onuoha back from injuries when Rangers host Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
