QPR boss reveals Fulham envy


HARRY Redknapp is casting envious eyes at the Fulham set-up he faces tomorrow (Saturday) in the derby day clash at Loftus Road.

And the QPR boss hinted future transfer policy at Rangers will mirror the way things are done down the Fulham Palace Road.

In his most revealing interview yet, Harry claims there will be a more reasoned Rangers squad in the future and none of the scattergun approach that sees Rs propping up the Premier League.

He said: "Fulham are a model for us - them and clubs like West Brom.


"You're not going to build a team in a week or a year. It takes time.

"Building a team is not just about signing players. Anyone can throw a load of players in and come up with a load of rubbish.

"It's a case of looking where you need to strengthen, who will compliment each other, and that's what Fulham have done."

Redknapp singled out Dimitar Berbatov and Brede Hangeland as players to prevent a first win of the season at the 17th attempt - already a lamentable record for a winless run.

"Fulham are a good side, and they have got stronger and stronger over the years," said the QPR manager.

"Defensively they've got good players. Hangeland is nice and solid and they've got a good goalkeeper.

"Berbatov was a great signing. They paid a small transfer fee compared with his ability."

Fulham are a side that in the past held few fears for the Rangers coach, but as he was quick to point out - that was in the past.

He added: "I've done OK against Fulham. Tottenham beat them twice last year - but that was Tottenham." Fulham Chronicle
