Redknapp offers Gascoigne coaching role at QPR

Harry Redknapp speaking at a press conference today.

Harry Redknapp has offered an open invitation to Paul Gascoigne to help out with coaching his young players at QPR as he voiced his concern for the former England midfielder's health.

The 47-year-old has a long history of problems with alcohol, and is said to have been taken away by emergency services from his home in Dorset on Thursday. Pictures published on Friday morning showed Gascoigne looking gaunt and almost unrecognisable from his days turning out for the likes of Tottenham and Newcastle.

Since relocating to the South Coast, Gascoigne now lives in close proximity to Redknapp, who revealed he would jump at the chance to give him a way back into the game.

''He is a great lad and it is just sad to see how he is looking at the moment,'' the QPR boss said. '"I saw him about a month ago and I said 'I will pick you up in the mornings Gazza, come training with me. Do a little bit of work with the kids'. I would love it if he would do that. If he wants to do it, I would pick him up every morning at 5:45am at the end of his road and bring him in.

"He could go and do some coaching with the kids. I would love it if he would do that - that is an open invitation to him."

Harry Redknapp will be in the stands as Rangers take on Manchester United at Old Trafford this afternoon. Redknapp told the club's official website: "I'm delighted to be back in the managerial hot-seat at QPR.

"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."

Redknapp, who left Tottenham at the end of last season, takes over a side four points adrift at the foot of the table and without a win from their first 12 league games.


Redknapp was "number one target" says QPR Chairman

QPR chairman Tony Fernandes said: "Harry was our number one target, the unanimous choice of the board and we're delighted we've been able to attract him to the club."

Fernandes continued: "He has a proven track record in the Premier League and has all the characteristics we were looking for to get us out of the current situation we find ourselves in.

"His man-management skills are second to none and we are confident he is the right man to lead us away from the bottom of the table."

A announcement regarding Redknapp's backroom team will be made in due course.

Harry redknapp is being widely tipped to become the new manager at Queens Park Rangers, after the Premier League side sacked Mark Hughes earlier today.

The former Portsmouth manager, who lives in Poole, was sacked himself by Tottenham Hotspur in a surprise move in the summer.

Hughes has undoubtedly been under more pressure because of the availability of Redknapp.

Rangers fans have been calling for Redknapp to step in and it would be a major surprise if a man with so much Premier League experience did not head owner Tony Fernandes' list.
