QPR boss: I can’t get too het up with football
QPR manager Harry Redknapp has moved on after being overlooked for the England job and is now focusing on keeping the west Londoners in the Premier League.
The 65-year-old had a turbulent year; January and February saw him in court over tax charges and he was found innocent.
On the evening of his acquittal, former England manager Fabio Capello resigned leading to Redknapp being the favourite to take over.
But the FA overlooked him and appointed Roy Hodgson and Tottenham decided to dispense with him in the summer.
But the rollercoaster of Redknapp’s life has not bothered him too much.
“No. Not really,” Redknapp said. “As I say, things happen. If it happens, it happens.
“I didn’t go home that night when Roy was given the England job and locked myself up in a room.
