Redknapp: QPR position 'embarrassing'

Harry Redknapp said that saving QPR from relegation will be the toughest task of his career as he embarked upon his first full day in charge.

Newly-appointed Queens Park Rangers boss Harry Redknapp says the team should feel embarrassed after collecting just four points from their opening 13 Premier League games.

• Blog: Final position will judge Hughes tenure

The straight-talking Redknapp was in feisty mood as he hosted his first press conference since taking over from Mark Hughes at QPR's Harlington training base, and he pulled few punches with his condemnation of the misfiring stars he has been hired to revive in double-quick time.

"Four points is embarrassing," Redknapp is quoted as saying in several newspapers. "How can you have four points from 13 games? It's their fault, no one else's fault and they have to do better if they want to stay in the Premier League, it's a simple as that.

"You get people blaming each other in a situation like this. Players who aren't playing will blame those who are playing. Those who are playing will blame somebody else. It's up to me to make my own decisions over what's wrong with them and what needs doing.

"The challenge here is to bring this group of players together and I'll give it my best shot. I want to stay here for a few years and build a team. This is not a short-term fix for me."

Redknapp also spoke about his departure from Tottenham last summer, as he reflected his sacking may have been a blessing in disguise as it allowed him to recharge his batteries after a traumatic year on and off the field, which included his high profile tax evasion court case which went in his favour last February.

"It was a crazy year and the way at finished for at Tottenham was a bit bizarre," added Redknapp. "I have no problem with the people there. Daniel Levy (Spurs chairman) rang me to wish me luck when I took the QPR job, so there is no problem. That's life.

"Tottenham was a great experience. We got the club into the Champions League for the first time and I didn't go away after they sacked me and thought about jumping off a cliff. I played golf the next day, that's the way I am.

"I probably needed a break and leaving Spurs probably didn't do me any harm. I went through a tough year with the court case and everything else.

"I didn't watch a Premier League game until last Saturday (when he saw his new QPR side lose at Old Trafford) because anywhere I went, people would have thought I was after their job. I watched Bournemouth at weekend's and loved it. Now I'm looking forward to getting back in the Premier League."

Redknapp also confirmed he held discussions about becoming the Ukraine national team coach and was 'very excited' about the proposal, but the lure of working back in England's top flight proved too much for him to resist.

What he describes as "the toughest challenge of my career" will begin in earnest when QPR travel to Sunderland on Tuesday night.
