New QPR boss Harry Redknapp insists he never gets "het up" over missed opportunities.

Redknapp is back in football after being overlooked for the England job and sacked by Tottenham.

"When Daniel Levy sacked me that night (June 13) I didn't leave and think I'd jump off the edge of Bournemouth cliffs," Redknapp said on Monday.

"The next day I was up playing golf. I don't hold grudges and I spoke to Daniel over the weekend. He wished me all the best. It's all a bit bizarre the way things finished for me at Tottenham, but that's life.

"When I heard Roy Hodgson had got the England job I wasn't going to lock myself in a room - it's only a game. I can get het up because I want to do well but in the cold light of day what does it all mean?"
