Redknapp also reveals Ryan Nelsen branded the Rs locker room the worst he had experienced.
In his new book, 'Always Managing: My Autobiography by Harry Redknapp', being serialised in the Daily Mail: "Rangers had players like Jose Bosingwa, who just six months earlier had won the Champions League final with Chelsea, but he wasn’t going to give his all. I found out the extent of the problem after we beat Fulham and Bosingwa refused to sit on the subs bench. I’d had problem players in the past but I thought his attitude was disgraceful.
"I fined him two weeks’ wages — and that was when I got the shock of my life when I found out how much he was on. Bosingwa’s salary was ridiculous.
"The problem was, he wasn’t the only one. It was scary. Within weeks I had worked out that my best player was Ryan Nelsen, a 35-year-old New Zealand international — and he couldn’t wait to get out.
"‘You’ve got no chance,’ he told me. ‘Not a prayer. This is the worst dressing room I’ve ever been in in my life. You haven’t got a hope with this lot. I don’t know how you solve it.’
"The attitude stank. Attitude towards the game, attitude towards training. I can’t remember a worse one — and behaviour like that cannot be altered overnight."
