R’S GAFFER Harry Redknapp has revealed Loic Remy is ‘touch and go’ for Saturday’s clash against Swansea City.
The French international striker missed the R’s goalless draw at home to Norwich City last weekend owing to a groin injury, but despite press speculation suggesting the former Marseille hit-man would be sidelined for ‘months,’ Redknapp was keen to set the record straight ahead of the trip to the Liberty Stadium.
“Remy is touch and go,” Redknapp told www.qpr.co.uk.
“We’ll assess him this morning and see how he is.
“He’s not too bad. The doc said all along it was only a minor groin injury.
“We can’t afford to lose him long term, so we won’t take a chance on him if he’s not ready.”
Rangers succumbed to a 5-0 defeat to Capital One Cup finalists Swansea City on the opening day of the season, but Redknapp insists that result is in the past and the R’s entire focus is on this weekend, commenting: “We’re unbeaten in five games against five very good teams.
“We’re in good form and looking forward to going to Swansea and giving them a good game.
“Swansea have bought a lot of players in. They’ve bought well in the market. They’ve invested well.
“They play great football. They’ve been top class this season and taken their game onto another level.
“They’re a good team with an outstanding young manager.”
