Rodney Marsh believes Harry Redknapp is the right man to lead Queens Park Rangers out of trouble.
Redknapp is expected to be named the club’s new manager this weekend following Tony Fernandes’ decision to ditch Mark Hughes.
Rangers have yet to win a Premier League game this season and face a daunting trip to Manchester United on Saturday but Marsh is confident the former Tottenham boss will quickly turn things around at Loftus Road.
The R’s legend told H & J: “Harry Redknapp is, in my opinion, one of the most fantastic football people that there are around. It if is him, I have got no doubt that he will turn it around and QPR will stay up.”
Hughes lasted just ten months in west London but Marsh insists the Welshman only has himself to blame after splashing out over £20million on new signings that have, largely, failed to impress.
“The majority of the players that Mark Hughes brought in were crap," he said. “Look at the players they have signed. You don’t have to be a football expert to look at the players. [Bobby] Zamora, Shaun Wright-Phillips. They are dire.
"Over the last 18 months the players they have signed have been really, really terrible players. That has to go down to the manager and the owner, it’s as simple as that.
“I’ve seen every single game QPR have played this season either on satellite in America or in London and they have absolutely no consistency or continuity about the football team.
"Before the season started we had this fantastic heralding of a new goalkeeper that we were going to sign – Robert Green. He lasted one game. They have not played the same team twice the whole season and that tells you something."
