Harry Redknapp has been speaking at a press conference ahead of his side crucial clash with Liverpool on Sunday.
The veteran manager was asked about Rio Ferdinand, who had been in trouble during the week for sending an ‘abusive tweet’. When asked about the incident, Redknapp replied:
“It’s not that I don’t like Twitter, I don’t know what it is. A few of them here are big on it, but they should be concentrating on their football.”
QPR will welcome Brendan Rodgers’ side to Loftus Road and admitted that Liverpool are a work in progress.
“Liverpool are a fine side, they lost the fourth best player in the world in Suarez, but they’ll be pushing for top four [in the Premier League table]. Liverpool, like ourselves, are a work in progress. Brendan [Rodgers] had to make changes this season but they’ve a great squad still.”
The Former Tottenham boss insisted that they are no problems between himself and chairman Tony Fernandes.
“I talk to Tony every day, I’m having dinner with him tonight. I’m doing my best and he knows that. It was never going to be easy this season. There’s been a big upheaval, the lads haven’t hit the ground running. We’ve struggled to get all the new players up to speed. Jordan Mutch and Sandro have struggled fitness-wise. Our players haven’t been fit, but I’ve still got every confidence in the squad here.”
Redknapp also revealed that some of his squad are still carrying injuries, while the Chilean duo of Maurico Isla and Eduardo Vargas will have to assessed.
“We’ve got one or two out. Joey Barton is still out with a hamstring. Niko [Kranjcar] has a broken toe, but he might be ok. [Eduardo] Vargas and [Mauricio] Isla will be assessed after their international games with Chile, but I’m sure they’ll be ok.“
