Former Queens Park Rangers boss Harry Redknapp has allegedly praised the club in a phone call to chairman Tony Fernandes.

Queens Park Rangers chairman Tony Fernandes has taken to Twitter to reveal that Harry Redknapp called him to discuss the team's performance against Brighton and Hove Albion.

QPR may have won their first game under returning manager Ian Holloway with a 2-1 victory over Norwich City on November 19th, but have now lost their last six games.

Their most recent defeat came on Tuesday afternoon, as they travelled to take on promotion-chasing Brighton and Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium in what proved to be a dismal away trip.

After Sam Baldock and Glenn Murray had put Brighton 2-0 up, Nedum Onuoha was sent off for the R's, and Anthony Knockaert added a third to seal a comfortable victory for Chris Hughton's men.

The result left QPR just three points clear of the relegation zone, and manager Holloway is already under pressure, with today's game against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux.

Ahead of that game, QPR chairman Tony Fernandes has taken to Twitter to reveal that former R's boss Harry Redknapp phoned him to discuss the defeat at Brighton.

Redknapp, 69, won 34% of his 105 games in charge of QPR before leaving in February 2015, but clearly still keeps up with the club's results if his conversation with Fernandes is anything to go by.

Fernandes claims that Redknapp praised QPR's performance against Brighton, and slammed Onuoha's controversial sending off for a foul on Baldock – and Fernandes praised Redknapp for his 'decent' message to his former club.

Do you think QPR will beat Wolves this afternoon?
