Harry Redknapp has warned his QPR players that if they continue to underperform for the club they will most likely find a move away from Loftus Road difficult in the summer, according to Sky
Speaking after his side’s 2-0 defeat at the hands of Everton, Redknapp questioned the talent and drive of his players.
He feels that while players believe relegation from the Premier League will open the door for them to move elsewhere and remain in England’s top-flight, there will be few takers for stars who show a distinct lack of passion to help their current club’s cause.
He said: “You say talented players, but I don’t know. Are they that talented? I don’t know, really. You have some experienced players, but you need a good group of characters and you have not got any problems when you have that.
“I hear all the time that, if they get relegated, they will want to go because they won’t want to play in the Championship, but if they played better they would not be in the Championship, so that’s a load of cobblers.
“They won’t go. How are you going to get rid of them? That’s your biggest problem. They all have contracts. I wish you were right, and you could say (the players would leave), but it ain’t going to happen here.
“Who is going to pay them what they are earning here? It is going to be very hard to shift them.”
The defeat to Everton leaves QPR 10 points adrift of the likes of Aston Villa, Stoke and Sunderland in the lower safe spots, with a maximum of only 15 points available before the end of the season.
