Harry Redknapp

QPR boss Harry Redknapp has taken a dig at Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli, according to the Independent.

Balotelli recently tweeted 'Man United... LOL' when Manchester United were losing 5-3 at Leicester City - and Redknapp couldn't resist a taunt at the Liverpool forward when asked about it at a press conference.

Indeed, the Rs boss - while claiming he 'doesn't even know' what Twitter is - took aim at Balotelli for mocking United when the Reds had lost 3-1 at West Ham only the day before.

"No chance. I don't even know what it is. I don't understand it," Redknapp told reporters.

"There's people whose teams just got smashed up and the next day they're commenting on other people's teams.

"And I'm thinking, hang on, you lost last night."

Rio Ferdinand

Meanwhile, experienced centre-back Rio Ferdinand has been looking ahead to Saturday's trip to Southampton on Twitter:

Steven Caulker

Elsewhere, Redknapp is expected to start centre-back Steven Caulker despite the defender getting wrongfully arrested earlier this week.

Caulker was wrongly accused of stealing a tub of Philadelphia cheese from a supermarket but the London Evening Standard believe the 22-year-old will still start for the Rs.
