CHAIRMAN Tony Fernandes has confirmed Harry Redknapp will be remaining as QPR manager.
Press speculation has been rife in recent days that Redknapp’s position is under threat, but Fernandes – speaking exclusively to www.qpr.co.uk, on behalf of the Board – was keen to set the record straight, commenting: “There’s been a lot of rumours about Harry’s position being under threat, so I thought it was time to end all the speculation, so everyone can focus on the challenge ahead.
“I firmly believe Harry is the best man to get us out of the position we currently find ourselves in.
“He has great experience and having spoken to him at length over the last week or so, he is determined to turn this around and help us maintain our Premier League status.
“This is Harry’s squad of players, so he is the man to move us forward.”
He added: “The performance against Manchester United showed the players are behind him and that they have the stomach for the fight.
“We know we need to improve our away form and Harry, his coaching staff and the squad will be doing all they can to turn around our fortunes on our travels.
“It’s very tight in the table and we will do our best to strengthen where we can to give us the best possible chance.
“The fans have been brilliant all season and all I ask is that they continue to back Harry and the team.”
The club will be making no further comment.
