Redknapp disappointed as R’s exit the FA Cup …\
HARRY Redknapp bemoaned a below par QPR performance, as Rangers were sent crashing out of the FA Cup at the hands of Premier League Everton at Goodison Park.

Goals from Nikica Jelavic (2), Ross Barkley and Seamus Coleman condemned the R’s to a 4-0 defeat, on an afternoon when the gulf in class between the top-flight and the second tier was clear for all to see.

“It was a disappointing afternoon, we were well beaten today,” Redknapp told www.qpr.co.uk.

“We were beat by a far better team. I thought Everton were excellent.

“Even though they made lots of changes, they were strong all over and made life very difficult for us.

“They’ve got some real quality throughout their squad and it really showed today.

“We struggled to live with them at times. Their movement, their passing, their attacking play – it was top class.

“The energy they play with is fantastic. The two full-backs are always pushing on. They get up and down. And (Ross) Barclay in midfield is an absolutely fantastic footballer.”

Despite the final scoreline, Redknapp insists he and his players will have learnt a lot of lessons in defeat, adding: “The lads learnt a lot today, and so did I.

“We had a long chat about it after the game because we were all understandably disappointed with the manner of our performance.

“Today was a benchmark for us. We want to get out of the Championship and be competing against sides like Everton every week next year.

“We didn’t do ourselves justice today though and that’s what hurts.

“There’s a clear gulf in class between the two divisions and that showed, make no mistake about that.”

Rangers return to Championship action with a trip to Portman Road – the home of Ipswich Town – next weekend and the R’s boss is expecting a response.

“We’ve got to regroup now and work hard. We’ve got to pick ourselves up,” he said.

“We’ve got a tough game at Ipswich next weekend and we need to be ready.

“The league is all important for us. All we’re focused on now is getting out of this division.

“That’s been our goal all season long and we’re in with a real shot.”
