Harry Redknapp hopes Fulham supporters do not boo Bobby Zamora on Monday night.

Harry Redknapp hopes Fulham supporters do not boo Bobby Zamora on Monday night.

QPR make the short trip to Southwest London with former Cottagers striker Zamora in tow but Redknapp wants the home fans to spare him their jeers after the attacker departed for Loftus Road in January 2012.

"I don't know why you should get stick when you go back to a club where you have done so fantastically well," Redknapp said.

"Why do you abuse someone when they have given you good service and been a good player?

"I went to watch them play Juventus that night (in the Europa League). That was one of the best footballing nights I have ever been to.

"Fulham went 1-0 down and they were something like 4-1 down on aggregate (but came back to win 4-1 on the night) and Bobby ripped them to pieces.

"What a night of football, I loved every minute of it. Years ago people would go back to their old club and they would get a lovely ovation. Dear oh Lord, what has happened?"
