Harry Redknapp fires warning to underperforming QPR players
New QPR manager Harry Redknapp has warned his under-performing players to buck up their ideas or they’ll be out the door.
The R’s have only four points from 13 games and sacked former manager Mark Hughes on Friday.
With the former Tottenham boss in the stands on Saturday, the west Londoners were beaten 3-1 by league-leaders Manchester United.
“I know the situation,” Redknapp said. “We’ve got four points in 13 games, which is a low total.
“I heard Ray Wilkins talk about the team. We’ve got to do better.
“If we don’t we’ve got no chance. It’s going to be tough.”
And Redknapp demands that his side put in 100 per cent effort for him and was clear about what will happen to them if they fail to do so.

“We’ve all got to work hard,” he added. “If they’re not willing to work hard, they’re not going to play.
“If you lose the ball, chase it. That’s what you did in school - chase after the ball.
“I need 11 people to put effort in. If we put that effort in we’ve got a chance.
“If they don’t, then I’ll find 11 who’ll run about and work hard.
“I’m looking for some graft and people going to work.
“I have no time for people losing the ball and throwing their arms in the air and standing around with their hands on their head.
“If everybody works the ability is there. If we do that we’ll be okay.”
