REDKNAPP RESIGNS

Harry Redknapp has resigned as QPR manager to undergo knee replacement surgery.

"I need immediate surgery," said Redknapp. "If I can't give 100%, it's better for someone else to take over."

Redknapp led QPR to promotion to the Premier League last season via the Championship play-offs.

"I have had such a fantastic time at QPR," said Redknapp, who took over at QPR in November 2012.

"I would like to thank the board, the players and all my staff, and especially the supporters who have been absolutely fantastic to me.

"My relationship with chairman Tony Fernandes has been one of the highlights of my footballing career and I wish the club every success.

"I am confident they will survive in the Premier League this year."
