Harry Redknapp may be living on borrowing time at Loftus Road with the QPR manager the new favourite to be the next Premier League boss to leave his post, according to the latest betting odds, verified by Oddschecker.
The Rs boss had been tied with Steve Bruce at 7/2 with Ladbrokes to be the next manager to depart, following a busy few weeks of managerial departures in the Premier League.
However fresh claims from the Daily Mirror suggesting that Redknapp could be sacked in the event that QPR lose at home to Manchester United on Saturday have seen the Rangers gaffer’s odds move to 11/4 with the bookmaker, according to Oddschecker.
It’s a similar story with most of the major bookmakers who have made the QPR manager the new favourite to leave his role.
This latest development follows last weekend’s 2-1 defeat to fellow Premier League newcomers Burnley, which saw Rangers extend their current winless run to five games.
That sequence of games included a 3-0 home defeat to League One side Sheffield United in the FA Cup while the Rs have also set a new unwanted record of 10 consecutive defeats on the road in the English top flight.
QPR’s home form could yet save Redknapp’s skin however, with the London club losing just two of their 11 games at Loftus Road in the Premier League this term.
Rangers have also taken 11 points from the last 15 available at home in the Premier League and are unbeaten in seven on their own patch.
Weekend opponents Manchester United, meanwhile, are without a win in three games away from Old Trafford in the top flight and head to the capital off the back of a disappointing 1-0 home defeat to top four rivals last Sunday.
Radamel Falcao was omitted from United’s squad last weekend but could be in line for a return this weekend with Robin van Persie potentially missing through injury.
