Redknapp: Irons much bigger club than Rangers


Harry Redknapp readily admits that West Ham is a bigger club than QPR and enjoys two particular massive advantages.

He makes it clear on the eve of his return to the Boleyn tomorrow (Sun) that there’s really little comparison between the two outfits and even less so when discussing the two academies and the ground.

He said: “They’ve had six kids played for England – that’s the first thing. We need to find kids who can play for QPR and producing some players. West Ham have had that tradition.”

He added:   “The West Ham stadium is twice the capacity of QPR, so that’s a problem in terms of revenue it brings in.”
