QPR manager Harry Redknapp has admitted the gravity of Rangers' current position in the Premier League and has said he and the team need to work hard to rise out of the bottom three.
Redknapp started his QPR career positively with a goalless draw with Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Tuesday night, and the newly appointed boss said the team’s performance showed promise.
“We are in a mess, let’s be honest, and we all need to pull together if we’re going to get out of it,” Redknapp told talkSPORT's The Sports Bar.
“The only way out of it is to work hard and they did, they grafted.
“We did well, there were some real positives from the game.
“Certain parts of the team looked strong, we looked strong in midfield, we defended well when we had to and we had a couple of great chances to win the game.
“Overall I couldn’t be more pleased...it was important to not get beaten.”
Redknapp added his praise for the team’s effort and also revealed his intensions to enhance his striking options.
“The effort was there and the commitment was there and it was a happy dressing room at the end of the game, they were pleased and that’s important.
“We probably just lack a little bit of cutting edge. We’re short of players upfront, it’s a lopsided squad, but there’s some real good players in there.
“We lack those options up front and we could do with a couple of front men to give us a chance.”
