thumbnail Hello,

The Hoops boss is relishing the challenge of getting the club back in the Premier League at the first attempt, having suffered the humiliation of relegation this season

Harry Redknapp has pledged his future to QPR, despite being unable to steer the west London club clear of relegation this season.

Redknapp took over from Mark Hughes in November with the Hoops at the foot of the Premier League, having claimed just four points from their opening 12 matches.

But despite an upturn in form, which included a 1-0 away win over local rivals Chelsea, the former Spurs boss was unable to prevent the club ending their two-year stay in the top flight.

“I know the kind of players we need and I’m working with Philip [Beard] and the owners to get deals over the line,” Redknapp told the club's official website.

“We’re in constant dialogue. We’re all on the same page and want to bring success to the club.

“I am committed to QPR. I want to do well for the club and I want to take it back where it belongs, in the Premier League.

“We’re trying to bring the right types of lads into the squad – players who have the right mentality, ability and character to get us out of this division.

“I know the game and know what QPR need to get back into the Premier League. It will be a difficult task but a challenge I am excited about undertaking.”
