Redknapp insists he has 'no problem' with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy

The now QPR manager was axed by the Spurs supremo in June but doesn’t have any ill-feelings toward Levy and will shake his hand when he visits Loftus Road on Saturday.
QPR manager Harry Redknapp insists he has no problem with his former employer, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy.

After guiding Spurs to a top-four finish last season, many were surprised when Redknapp got the boot from White Hart Lane but the 65-year-old manager insists he remains cordial with Levy and doesn’t want to dwell on the past.

“If I see Daniel, I’ll shake his hand, no problem,” Redknapp told reporters. “On the day I started at QPR, the first call I got was from Daniel wishing me luck.

“What’s happened has happened and is in the past. He is the chairman, he decided he wanted a change of direction with regard to the manager and that’s that.

“I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Spurs but now my focus is to get three points for Rangers when we play them because we are in a lot of trouble at the bottom of the table.”

Redknapp, who was linked with the England job before Roy Hodgson took over, has swapped battling for a top-four spot to battling to avoid relegation with the Hoops and the QPR boss is focused on beating Tottenham.

He added: “It’s business. All I want to do is win the game and then afterwards have a glass of wine with Andre if he fancies one.

“Life does move on. That is football. I have not got a problem with anyone at Tottenham, for sure.”
