New QPR manager Harry Redknapp has spoken of his "delight" at joining the west London club on a two-and-a-half year deal.
He told the club website:
I’m delighted to be back in the managerial hot-seat at QPR.
When I spoke to the shareholders and they told me about their plans I knew this was too good an opportunity to turn down.
There’s no doubt there’s a lot of ability in the squad, but for one reason or another things haven’t gone as well as everyone expected since the start of the season.
I can’t wait to get to work and get the results necessary to kick-start our season.
