Remy couldn’t have failed Liverpool medical, Redknapp says

Harry Redknapp has refused to accept that Loic Remy’s proposed move from Queens Park Rangers to Liverpool collapsed due to a problem with the striker’s medical, ESPN has reported.

Remy had seemed set to join the Premier League runners-up but Liverpool backed out, with reports suggesting the Reds saw something in his medical to raise concerns over the deal.


But Redknapp argued that Remy has regularly undergone medicals and never had a problem, causing the QPR manager to question what really happened. “I don't see how he could have failed a medical,” Redknapp said.


“He had a stringent one here, one at Marseille and at Newcastle and with France before the World Cup. You couldn't meet a fitter lad. It can't be a medical,” Redknapp continued. “There must be other reasons. It's not possible - it doesn't make any sense. There must be another reason.


“There must have been a breakdown or they [Liverpool] changed their minds or moved in a different direction. Talk of the medical doesn't make sense to me.”


Remy spent last season on loan at Newcastle United while QPR won promotion to the Premier League, Remy netting 14 goals in 27 games while the R’s came up through the play-offs, beating Derby County.


Redknapp added that he is happy to keep Remy at Loftus Road. “Their loss is our gain - we've got a fantastic striker,” Redknapp went on. “I said last year he was capable of scoring 20 goals in the Premier League. That's what we now want him to do for us.


“I'm disappointed for the boy and sorry the move didn't happen, but from a selfish point of view I've got a great player.”
