Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp has admitted that he would have retired if the R’s didn’t earn promotion back to the Premier League last season, as reported by BBC Sport.

Bobby Zamora scored a 90th minute winner at Wembley in the play off final to give ten man QPR a spot back in the big time and also kept hold of their manager.

Redknapp has enjoyed spells in the top flight with West Ham, Tottenham, Southampton, QPR and Portsmouth but is now keen to make his final job his best.

“If we hadn’t gone up, I would have turned it in,” Redknapp said.

“I wouldn’t have gone back and done another year in the Championship, it didn’t appeal to me anymore.”

“With 10 minutes to go I was thinking ‘which golf club should I join this year – should I play here or there?’ Then, suddenly, Bobby ruined it all.

“Now I am excited again. To go to Anfield and Old Trafford is fantastic, I am so lucky to be able to do that.”
