QPR boss Redknapp not bitter towards Tottenham counterpart Villas-Boas

QPR boss Harry Redknapp has denied any animosity exists between himself and Andre Villas-Boas, his counterpart at former club Tottenham. Relegation-haunted QPR host Tottenham at Loftus Road on Saturday lunchtime, with Redknapp meeting his former employers for the first time since being axed in June.

"I don't have a relationship with Villas-Boas but then I don't have a relationship with any other manager in the Premier League," Redknapp said.

"I don't socialise with him, he's gone to Tottenham and done a great job. What's the problem? I've got no problem with him at all.

"If I had something bad to say about him I'd say it, but I don't know him.

"I'll shake his hand after the game and invite him in for a drink, whatever the result. I don't have any problems with him. He seems a nice guy.

"I won't be thinking 'it's Tottenham, we have to beat them'. QPR are my club now, I'm not interested in Tottenham."
