QPR boss Harry Redknapp has ruled out a Christmas party for his players.

The Rs are still searching for their first Premier League win of the season and their manager wants to put off partying until the club has secured its top-flight status.

The boss said: "I'm not mad about footballers having Christmas. I've been doing this job an awful long time and find it seems to be nothing but aggravation.

"I feel in our position we're in we've really got nothing to celebrate. If we get out of trouble we'll have a big party at the end of the year, I'm sure. I just think this is the busiest time of the year."
