Redknapp seems resigned to QPR’s fate

QPR boss Harry Redknapp appeared to accept his team are heading for relegation after a last-gasp goal denied them victory against Wigan.

Redknapp, who has consistently insisted he believed Rangers will stay up, was despondent following the 1-1 draw at Loftus Road.

“It’s going to be hard [to stay up] now,” he admitted.

“If we had come off with three points with 10 men it would have been a fantastic boost.

“The players are very low – the same as me. They didn’t deserve that. The fans, who got right behind them, didn’t deserve it.”

Rangers were dealt a major blow when Bobby Zamora was sent off for a dangerously high challenge on Jordi Gomez after 20 minutes.

But Loic Remy’s fabulous strike looked like giving them a potentially crucial win before Shaun Maloney equalised with a free-kick in the final seconds.

Redknapp said: “We deserved to win that game. Wigan were bang average, to be honest.

“How many saves has our keeper had to make, even when we were down to 10 men?

“We would have won the game with 11 men and we could still have won with 10. Sometimes in football you don’t get what you deserve.”
