Ian Wright slams Harry Redknapp for comments about his son Shaun Wright-Phillips

Ian Wright is not pleased with the comments from the QPR boss today.

Ian Wright has launched a staunch defence of his son Shaun Wright-Phillips on Twitter today, after comments against the player made by his current boss at QPR Harry Redknapp.

Wright has slammed the comments by Redknapp today regarding a potential loan deal for SWP, stating on Twitter that his reason for staying at Loftus Road had nothing to do with money and that Redknapp was simply deflecting from the pressure he is currently under at the club, who are struggling at the bottom of the Premier League:




Earlier in the day the former Tottenham boss had claimed that Wright-Phillips was staying at QPR because of the money, despite being offered several good loan deals in the Championship. According to The Telegraph Redknapp stated:

"I like Shaun, he's a good lad, who comes in and trains well.

"We offered him opportunities to go out on loan to Blackburn, Bolton and Charlton but he's got a great contract here. I said to him that he needs to move on to play football. But it's very difficult to get that sort of money elsewhere.

"You can't blame the boy."

The former Manchester City and Chelsea player, who is the adopted son of the Arsenal legend, joined QPR for an undisclosed fee in August 2011 but played just 13 times in the Championship last season and has not featured at all in the 2014-15 Premier League season.

SWP gave his reason on why he was not ready to leave QPR on Twitter earlier today, suggesting that he was ready to stick around for a relegation battle.
