Harry Redknapp has hinted Queens Park Rangers could be his last managerial post ahead of Monday’s crunch west London derby at Fulham.

The 66-year-old replaced Mark Hughes at the Hoops in November after spending almost five months unemployed following his Tottenham Hotspur exit in June.

Although he has given little thought about whether he will be a Premier League or Championship coach next season, Redknapp admits he enjoyed his break away from football last summer and could see QPR being his last job.

He said: “You go home to your family and to your dogs. I talk to my dogs, I walk them every night.

“I never really turn off. You think about the team. I think if I stayed out longer this time I might not [have] come back.

“I started to enjoy my life in a way. There were plenty of things I could have done. I have other interests other football.

“But then I nearly took the Ukraine job. The longer you get out of it you start to think that your life is all right. But I am back in football full on.”

QPR have a good record in London derbies under Redknapp’s stewardship, beating Chelsea at Stamford Bridge before drawing with Tottenham Hotspur this season.

And the Hoops boss hopes the west London side can continue their unbeaten run against their local rivals at Craven Cottage on Monday night.

“We need that push. We need those three points could be so big for us,” he added.
