QPR boss Harry Redknapp has no doubt Rio Ferdinand will be crucial for David Moyes at Manchester United next season.

Redknapp was reacting to his former West Ham United defender announcing his international retirement this morning.

"People say he has lost his pace. Well, he may have lost a yard but he is still as quick as anybody because he was so quick anyway," he told talkSPORT.

"I'm sure he will do a great job for David [Moyes] if he sees him in his plans at Old Trafford."
