Jose Bosingwa's QPR future uncertain

Harry Redknapp is unsure whether he will pick Jose Bosingwa again after the QPR boss said he was "disturbed" by the right back's refusal to sit on the bench against Fulham.

Bosingwa, a Champions League winner with Chelsea last season, was fined two weeks' wages ($208,000 U.S.) the Saturday before last when he stormed out of Loftus Road after being told he would not be in Redknapp's starting lineup.

Redknapp launched a scathing tirade against the player and other underperforming members of his squad, after the news of Bosingwa's actions emerged over the weekend, calling them "average" and overpaid.

Redknapp did not hold back in his criticism of the Portuguese defender Monday.

"It disturbed me when a player doesn't want to sit on the bench when you are bang in trouble," Redknapp said. "We are all in trouble. The owner and the fans see their team losing every week, and suddenly you get someone who doesn't want to sit on the bench.

"(Bosingwa) said: 'I don't want to sit on the bench.' He thinks he is too good to sit on the bench. That is what disturbs me in this game. I have seen one or two incidents that have disturbed me."

Despite an injury to reserve right back Nedum Onuoha, Redknapp left Bosingwa out of his squad for Saturday's defeat to Newcastle.

When asked whether Bosingwa would play for him again, Redknapp replied: "I will have to look at it in the future. Let's see how we go."

Redknapp, a manager with more than 20 years' experience, will no doubt hope the rant will provoke Bosingwa and some of the other underperformers to react, starting with Boxing Day's home clash against West Brom.

The Rangers boss on Monday defended his decision to hit out publicly at a section of his squad and insisted he was relatively happy with the performances of most of his players since taking charge last month.

"I wasn't talking about all the players," said Redknapp, who inherited a team at the bottom of the table despite a glut of summer signings under his predecessor, Mark Hughes. "I have no problem with players earning good money if they give good value for their money, and I just feel that one or two haven't. You don't have to be a mind reader to see that we haven't had good value for money. It's pretty obvious.

"Mark is a top manager. But one or two of the players haven't pulled their weight. That's why Mark lost his job."

The next five weeks will be decisive in Redknapp's quest to keep QPR in the Barclays Premier League. The west London club faces a tough run of fixtures, and the Rangers boss must work sensibly in the transfer market.

Despite an upturn in form since he took charge, Redknapp's team is still five points adrift of safety as the season approaches the halfway point.

The 65-year-old believes he can keep the team up, but he underlined just how big a task lies ahead for him if he is to stop QPR from slipping into the championship.

"We really have to show top-six form," Redknapp said. "We will need as near to 40 points as possible. That is a point and a half a game. It's going to be tough, but it can happen. You can go on a run and do that."
