Redknapp to receive big bonus if QPR maintain Premier League status

Harry Redknapp, the presumptive new manager of Queens Park Rangers, will receive a seven-figure bonus if the relegation-threatened side remain in the Premier League at the end of the season, the Daily Mirror has reported.

Redknapp will be the recipient of a reward of more than £1m if he keeps QPR out of the Championship – and that is on top of his £3m-a-year salary, the newspaper adds. The former Tottenham Hotspur boss, who left White Hart Lane in the summer, will watch Rangers play Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday and is expected to be confirmed in the position on Monday.

The 65-year-old replaces Mark Hughes, who was sacked on Friday with QPR lying bottom of the league, winless in their first 12 games of the season and with only four points to their name, five adrift of safety.

The Mirror claims that Hughes was preparing to take training on Friday morning when he was informed of the board’s decision to sack him, leading to an angry exchange between the Welshman and those deputised with delivering the news.
