Punter places huge bet on QPR staying up

An Irish punter has bet £10,000 on QPR staying in the Premier League this season.

The bet was placed at a Bet Victor store in Dublin at odds of 6/5.

Rangers are bottom of the table and without a league win this season, but the recent appointment of Harry Redknapp as manager has raised hopes that they will avoid the drop.

A Bet Victor spokesman said: “We are very keen to lay Rangers and they are a big liability to finish in the top half of the table having been well backed pre-season at 5/2 (now 20s) and again at 6/1 after their poor start.

“We can’t see three poorer sides than the Hoops in the Premier League and believe this will be one of Redknapp’s greatest achievements if he keeps the R’s up.”
