Redknapp expanded on his recent comments about some of QPR's big-money stars earning more than they are actually worth.
He told The Sun: "We're a team, some players you leave out, some won't even be in the squad, but they have to be a part of the team. That's what happens in teams.
"I watched the Lions on video and it was fantastic to see the attitude of the players. We've seen it in the Olympics this year - it's about teams, not individuals.
"So, you get left out of the team, next week it will be someone else's turn - you've got to work hard to get back in, that's all you ask and when people are earning big money they should feel fortunate to come in every day, play football, come out here and do something they've loved doing since they were kids.
"What a lovely way to earn a living. We're so fortunate - very, very lucky."
