Delighted QPR boss hails ‘world class’ Cesar

QPR manager Harry Redknapp paid tribute to goalkeeper Julio Cesar after the 0-0 draw against Tottenham.

Rangers got men behind the ball and hung on for a point at Loftus Road, where Cesar produced an important double save early in the game.

The Brazilian dived to his right to tip Jermain Defoe’s shot onto the post and then did brilliantly to keep out Emmanuel Adebayor’s follow-up.

“He’s a world class goalkeeper, there’s no doubt about that,” a delighted Redknapp declared.

Fabio was also excellent against Spurs.

“You don’t win the Champions League like he has unless you’re world class, and that’s what he is.”

Following their shock victory at Chelsea, the stalemate against Redknapp’s former club continued Rangers’ encouraging recent run and maintained their hopes of avoiding relegation.

Redknapp said: “It’s a great point. I couldn’t have asked for more from them. They stuck to their jobs and did everything I asked.

“We were playing against a top-class team and have taken four points from Chelsea and Tottenham – and that’s how it’s going to have to be if we’re going to stay up.

“We had to be set up like when we went to Chelsea and make sure we were difficult to beat. We have to do that against the better teams. You take a point from these sort of games.

“We played 4-4-2 against Liverpool recently and were ripped to pieces. Open up against them [Tottenham] and you are going to be destroyed.”

Meanwhile, Redknapp has confirmed he is signing Jake Livermore on loan from Tottenham and wants West Brom’s Peter Odemwingie.
