QPR manager Harry Redknapp criticised the club’s high-earning under-performers following the defeat against Newcastle.
The 1-0 loss at St James’ Park means Rangers, who are one off the bottom of the table, will complete 2012 without a single away victory,
That despite massive spending by the Tony Fernandes-led regime, who are set to sign yet more players in January in another attempt to turn things around.
One of those high-earning flops, Jose Bosingwa, was fined for refusing to be a substitute for last weekend’s derby against Fulham.
And Redknapp said: “I fined a player last week and he’s earning more than anyone at Tottenham.
“You shouldn’t be paying massive wages when you have 18,000 people. This club [Newcastle] holds 55,000 people and I bet their players aren’t earning as much as some of ours.
“There are players [at QPR] who earn far too much money for what they are. Far, far, far too much money for their ability and what they give to the club.
“I don’t really want to see the owners have their pants taken down like they have in the past. There’s a lot of agents who made money out of them.”
