QPR are in a mess, admits Harry Redknapp after Sunderland draw
Harry Redknapp admits QPR are in a "mess" but the new boss was pleased with his side's display in draw at Sunderland
Harry Redknapp admitted Queens Park Rangers are in a “mess” following their disastrous start to the season but insists he was pleased with his side’s display after their goalless draw at Sunderland.
The Hoops remain rooted to the foot of the Premier League table after managing to pick up just five points from their opening 14 games.
The stalemate at the Stadium of Light was Redknapp’s first game in charge since taking over from Mark Hughes this week.
And the 65-year-old was heartened by his side’s effort against the Black Cats, stressing the importance of getting something out of the game.
“We are in a mess, let’s be honest, and we all need to pull together if we’re going to get out of it,” Redknapp, whose side host Aston Villa on Saturday, told talkSPORT.
“The only way out of it is to work hard and they did, they grafted. We did well, there were some real positives from the game.
“Certain parts of the team looked strong, we looked strong in midfield, we defended well when we had to and we had a couple of great chances to win the game.
“Overall I couldn’t be more pleased, it was important to not get beaten.”
