Redknapp admits QPR were "run ragged" at Loftus Road but, despite that and his team's predicament, is confident he can turn things around.
"I think we'll stay up still," the Rs boss said. "You'll think we're mad, but I think we will stay up.
"I only want positive people around me, I said that in the dressing room.
"Those that are moping around, the subs that are not playing, are not playing because they're no good.
"If they had been any good, I'd be picking them. I don't need miserable faces, I don't need them around me.
"I need people who are upbeat. The next two games are unbelievable, Chelsea away and Tottenham at home - two of the best teams in the country.
"They are difficult games, but we've got to keep going and I still think we'll do it."
