QPR manager Harry Redknapp admits he's taking a gamble with the loan signing of West Ham United midfielder Ravel Morrison.

Morrison is joining QPR to the end of the season.

"You need people who can open the door, someone who can unlock a defence," Redknapp told Sky Sports News. "I've always had someone in my team who can change a game.

"I've always enjoyed having someone like that, whether it was Paolo Di Canio or Paul Merson when I went to Portsmouth, someone who can do something special and turn a game for you.

"I just think Ravel is one of those lads who can do that for us. I'm not sitting here saying it's not a gamble because he is a gamble.

"If he didn't have a problem somewhere, he wouldn't be coming to QPR. He would be still at United because he's got that talent.

"It's a chance you take sometimes in life; you have to take a gamble. Sometimes they come off, sometimes they don't - but if you don't buy a ticket, you are never going to win the lottery."
