Queens Park Rangers chairman Tony Fernandes has given manager Harry Redknapp his full support, saying that he is the man to lead the club to Premier League safety.

The R’s are currently down in 19th place in the Premier League, having earned just one point from their last five league games, although they are just one point from safety.

However, Fernandes is adamant that the vastly experienced Redknapp is the right man to guide Rangers out of the bottom three and has made his feelings known to try and stop speculation over the position at Loftus Road.

He told his club’s official website: “There’s been a lot of rumours about Harry’s position being under threat, so I thought it was time to end all the speculation, so everyone can focus on the challenge ahead.

“I firmly believe Harry is the best man to get us out of the position we currently find ourselves in. This is Harry’s squad of players, so he is the man to move us forward.”

Ranger have been a tale of two seasons so far, having secured all of their 19 points to date at home, while they have lost all ten of their league games on the road.

That is a run they will seek to end in two weeks’ time when they head to the Potteries to take on Stoke City,with Rangers priced at 5.24 to secure a much-needed win and at 3.62 to gain a draw.

Earlier this season the two sides shared a 2-2 draw at Loftus Road, with Niko Kranjcar netting an equaliser for the hosts two minutes from time.
