Fernandes must ‘bite the bullet’ and spend more, says Redknapp

Harry Redknapp says QPR must spend in January even if it means adding to the club’s whopping wage bill.

Rangers are struggling near the bottom of the table despite their huge spending under chairman Tony Fernandes and would like to offload some of their highly-paid under-performers.

But with offers for such players likely to be thin on the ground, there is no prospect of the manager having to sell before he can buy.

Redknapp explained: “The chairman knows we’re going to have to bite the bullet a bit and get on with what we’ve got if we’re going to get a couple in.

“We’ve just got to get them in, otherwise we’ll wait and it might not happen. We’ve got to find one or two who might help us.”

And the R’s boss insists the club must make signings as soon as the transfer window opens as they cannot afford to wait.

“We really need to do our business at the start of January. It’s no good us waiting until the last day,” he said.

“The end of January is too late. We’ve got to do our stuff before then. You can’t wait.”
