Rangers boss backs ‘incredible’ Wenger

Harry Redknapp has insisted that Arsene Wenger does not deserve the criticism the Arsenal manager has received.

Many Gunners fans have called for the Frenchman to go, but Redknapp believes Arsenal will secure another top-four finish this season despite some poor displays.

The QPR boss, who takes his side to the Emirates Stadium on Boxing Day, said: “I can’t believe Arsene Wenger would get any stick.

“Arsenal are a good side and I still think they’ll finish in the top four. I can’t see them being out of it.

“They do it every year and I don’t see why they won’t do it again this year. They’ve got some excellent players.

“The pace that they play at, with the movement and passing, they’re a good team to watch that’s for sure.

“Arsene Wenger has been an incredible manager for Arsenal – a fantastic manager – and I’m sure he’ll continue to do that for as long as he wants to.”

Rangers head to north London having lost all of their nine away matches this season, with eight of those defeats coming in the league.

“We’ll give it our best and see if we can pick up a result,” Redknapp said.

“It’s a tough game but we went to Chelsea and played well and we need to go to Arsenal and play well. We need to pick up some points away from home if we can.”
