Harry Redknapp ‘Delighted’ After QPR Confirm Manager Appointment

QPR confirmed it has appointed Harry Redknapp as its new manager on a two-and-a-half year contract.

The former Tottenham boss replaces Mark Hughes, who was sacked by the Premier League’s bottom side yesterday.

“I’m delighted to be back in the managerial hot-seat at QPR,” Redknapp said in a statement on the club’s website today. “When I spoke to the shareholders and they told me about their plans, I knew this was too good an opportunity to turn down.”
