Redknapp rues ‘definite foul’ by the forward who he’s spent ‘more time with than my wife’

Harry Redknapp said there was a ‘definite foul’ from Peter Crouch in the build up to Stoke’s opening goal in the 2-2 draw at Loftus Road this lunchtime, reports the Evening Standard.

Former England striker Crouch appeared to climb on the shoulders of QPR defender Rio Ferdinand to head the ball into the path of Mame Diouf, who put the Potters in front.

“It was a definite foul,” said Redknapp.

“I love Crouchy, I’ve signed him before – I’ve spent more time with Crouchy than my wife! – but that was definitely a foul.”

Despite his disappointment with the opening goal, Redknapp was delighted with the way in which his side responded to grab a point, courtesy of a free kick from Niko Kranjcar.

He added: “It’s a vital point, every point is vital to us in this division.

“It’s a good point and it makes it a decent weekend – it’s not a great weekend but it’s not a terrible weekend.”
