QPR boss Redknapp: Man Utd veteran Ferdinand as good as ever

QPR boss Harry Redknapp says Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has been as good as ever this season.

Redknapp brought Ferdinand through at West Ham United.

Redknapp said: "Rio losing a yard of pace still makes him as quick as any centre half in the country.

"He's been a top player since he was 17, and if Alex thinks he's lost a yard, then that just brings him closer to the next quickest centre half in the country.

"I don't think Fergie's too bothered Rio's not playing for England - it just keeps him fit for United instead."
