Harry Redknapp has reacted to the growing pressure he is under at struggling Queens Park Rangers by vowing he will not quit the Premier League’s bottom club.
With a growing number of QPR supporters calling for Redknapp to go following their disappointing start to the season, speculation has grown that the club might replace him with Tim Sherwood or Tony Pulis. However, the veteran manager, who guided Rangers to promotion through the Championship play-offs last season, has no intention of standing down.
In an exclusive interview with The Independent, Redknapp said: “I have no intention of walking away, not a chance. I’ve not even considered it. I’m confident I can keep the club up, nothing has changed.

“I have not had any discussions about my future with [chairman] Tony Fernandes, the subject hasn’t even come up so I’m in the dark if anything is happening. But what can I do if they decide they want to make a change? Nobody has died, it’s football and life goes on.”
QPR face Liverpool at Loftus Road on Sunday and many Rangers fans were angered by their tame display in losing 2-0 at West Ham two weeks ago. Yet Redknapp still has faith in his players. “I’ve been around a long time, I’ve seen it all before,” he said. “But my commitment to the job hasn’t changed and I believe when everyone is fit results will start to turn. I’m not going to throw in the towel because we are having a hard time of it. The fans pay good money to watch their team so they are entitled to their opinion.”Reuse content
