Redknapp: Difference between high and low wage earners hurting QPR

QPR boss Harry Redknapp admits the difference in earnings within the squad has caused friction.

Redknapp reckons the difference between the top and bottom earners at Loftus Road has caused most of the friction.

He said: "It's always a problem trying to heal a rift, it is not easy. I would be lying if I said there were not splits in the camp.

"That has been obvious for everyone to see all year. It is hard to know who speaks to who. I just take them out on the training ground. I haven't had this too much anywhere else but when we came it was obvious there was a problem. It is difficult with players earning differently.

"It is not a problem if you are playing with Robin van Persie or Steven Gerrard and they are getting 130 or 140 grand a week - because you don't mind if the players are worth it.

"The problem is if players look at another and think 'he ain't that good'.

"People don't mind others getting good money if they earn it."
