HARRY Redknapp cut a frustrated figure after defeat to Newcastle United capped a ‘miserable season’ in QPR’s final home game of the season.
Loic Remy’s early penalty handed Rangers an early lead before Hatem Ben Arfa levelled the scores with a spot-kick of his own.
Hesitancy amongst the R’s defence allowed Yoan Gouffran to fire the Magpies in front, who held out for maximum points despite goalkeeper Rob Elliot’s late dismissal.
“The first half performance was really poor,” Redknapp told www.qpr.co.uk
“We started well and looked bright. But once we gave it [the lead] away we seemed to lose everything.
“We were really poor after that.”
A trip to Anfield awaits Rangers in their final outing of the season but Redknapp is already planning for the summer.
The R's boss admits he has a tough task ahead as Redknapp intends to rebuild the side following relegation from the top flight.
He added: “It’s been a miserable season.
“Something has got to be done because if you take that team out there at the start of next season we wouldn’t finish in the top half of the Championship.
“We haven’t got the quality in my opinion, we’re short of good players who can really play at the top level.
“We’re going to have to do something about it. It’s going to be a very difficult job.”
