QPR boss Redknapp can't believe Man Utd cut loose Morrison

QPR boss Harry Redknapp can't believe Manchester United allowed Ravel Morrison to leave. The midfielder is now on-loan at QPR from West Ham United.

"He's going to be an important player for us in the play-offs," said Redknapp.

"Ravel's done very well for us. We've been pleased with him. He's a real talent. He's got the ability to become a top player, as long as he keeps focused.

"The ability's up there with the best in the country really, in terms of what he can do.

"He's a smashing boy. I've found him a nice kid. He's not been a minute's problem.

"Before I took him, I spoke to [manager] Lee Clark at Birmingham and he loved him when he had him last year.

"Sam [Allardyce at West Ham] liked him. I think he just felt that he'd gone down another road and he wasn't going to play so he let him come on loan and I was grateful for that.

"Hopefully he's got a great future. I'd love to see him do well."

Asked about whether Morrison could one day feature for England, Redknapp said: "You hope so, you just don't know. It's up to Ravel. He's got to make sure he keeps his eye on the job at hand."
