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.
