The QPR boss Harry Redknapp has clearly told the club hierarchy that he doesn’t want to talk about contract extension at this point of time.
This is Redknapp’s last year as QPR manager.
There were reports that the decision makers at the Loftus Road Stadium wanted the manager to put pen on a fresh deal, but, after the recent disappointing performances of the Rangers that have left them at the last position in the league table ahead of international break, the idea has been put on hold.
Redknapp, however, has dismissed these reports as rumours and has instead claimed that he himself let the owner know that the extension is not at the top of his priorities right now.
According to Redknapp, he wants to wait till the end of the season and see where the team ends up. If the Rangers get demoted, he would, most probably, be leaving.
In a Newspaper interview the day before yesterday, Redknapp was quoted as saying, “I had a chat with Tony about a month back and I had told him I was not ready to do any talks about the deal.”
“We first need to get this ongoing campaign finished. My decision will be based on what our position is in the table at the end of the season. If we are not able to escape relegation, there would not be any possibility of me staying.”
“I have such a good rapport with the owner that it’s not necessary for me to have signed a new contract. Let’s see where we find ourselves in May.”
Just one win has come for the Rangers playing in the English top tier the ongoing season. That was against Sunderland in August. They have lost regularly afterwards except that one game against Stoke City which they drew.
