QPR playing staff were witness to Redknapp hairdryer, claims Henry

QPR 1

Queens Park Rangers squad were on the wrong end of a Harry Redknapp rollicking, according to Karl Henry.

Queens Park Rangers remain in an early relegation fight after their 3-2 loss to Liverpool, however, the manner in which they lost their match in west London this weekend upset manager Harry Redknapp.

Chile striker Eduardo Vargas twice equalised for Queens Park Rangers, at 1-1 and then again at 2-2, yet the home time continually failed to hold on to a result as Steven Caulker was at fault for diverting the ball into his own goal, as Liverpool escaped the Capital with maximum points.

“Harry was not happy,” said midfielder Karl Henry to The Express, who went on to intimate that Redknapp dished out some hairdryer treatment. “He was shouting at us of course - we threw it away. It was naive from us, unprofessional. It can't happen.

“Someone said in the dressing room that it wouldn't have even happened in an Under-11s game. The goals we conceded were shocking. How were we unprofessional? Like with the first goal. They take a quick free kick and we were asleep. It was ridiculous.

“Then having them break on us for the second goal, running out of their box quicker than we did. You cross the ball and it drops in their box and it's not possible that they have four of five bodies in our box and we're not with them. That shouldn't be possible.

“Then when you get to 2-2 late on in the game - you don't concede. But we dropped the free kick short rather than run it in the stand or making it sure it's long, in the corner, somewhere else.

“Everyone in the dressing room was really disappointed afterwards," Henry said. "We were extremely disappointed in ourselves - we let ourselves down.

“We played well for large parts of the game, to come in with no points is a joke. But we only have ourselves to blame.”
