Harry Redknapp has resigned from his position as QPR manager.
The 67-year-old took arrived at Loftus Road in 2012 and guided the team to promotion last season, however, this season has proved more difficult, with the London club currently deep in relegation trouble, sitting second bottom of the Premier League.
Redknapp confirmed his decision on the club’s official website where he said: “I have had such a fantastic time at QPR. I would like to thank the Board, the players and all my staff, and especially the supporters who have been absolutely fantastic to me since I arrived at the club for their tremendous support.
“Sadly I need immediate surgery on my knee which is going to stop me from doing my job in the coming weeks. It means I won’t be able to be out on the training pitch every day, and if I can’t give 100 per-cent I feel it’s better for someone else to take over the reins.
“My relationship with Tony Fernandes has been one of the highlights of my footballing career and I wish the club every success. I am confident they will survive in the Premier League this year.”
