QPR boss Harry Redknapp admits he'll be happy to see the back of 2012.

He endured the stress of a court case, the pain of being snubbed by England and then got axed by Tottenham.

But Redknapp, 65, was cleared of charges of tax evasion and is now back in the hot-seat after answering rock-bottom QPR's SOS.

He admitted: "It has been a tough year.

"It tested my character but when you go through that court case, anything after that is easy, apart from losing someone in your life."
