QPR’s no-nonsense boss Harry Redknapp has rubbished current rumours that imply his position at the west London club is in jeopardy and confirmed he will take the two-year contract extension offered by club owner, Tony Fernandes.
The outspoken Londoner has been subject to speculation since losing the first two fixtures of QPR’s league run but appears to have the full backing of Fernandes, who wishes to secure Redknapp at the club until summer 2016.
“It’s absolute rubbish (the speculation), we’ve played two games,” he told Setanta Sports.
“Fernandes wants me to sign a two-year extension. He’s been asking me for a little while but we’ve just not got around to doing it.”
Redknapp is so confident the deal will be agreeable that he said he will probably not even bother to read the small print.
“Maybe (I will sign) today or tomorrow, whenever. I haven’t read it, I probably won’t read it, I’ll just sign it.”
The 67-year-old coach brought QPR back to the top flight at the end of the 2013/2014 season via the play-off route and believes he is fully capable of keeping the side thriving in the Premier League.
“I wanted to come back into the Premier League, I want to stay here and I will stay here this year. We’ll stay up.”
