Redknapp: Keeping QPR up bigger than leading Spurs into Champions League

Harry Redknapp says keeping up QPR would be a bigger achievement than leading Tottenham into the Champions League.

QPR face Fulham in a must-win game.

"I want to do well for QPR, the club and the fans, but I don't worry about getting the sack or about how I'm going to make a living," he said. "Whatever happens, it's not going to change my life now.

"Don't get me wrong, your pride's at stake and I still get knocked for six when we lose games we could have won, like our last match at Aston Villa. I still have nothing much else on my mind other than trying to think how we can get out of this situation.

"I am always thinking about the team, the way we have to approach games. Without a doubt, keeping Rangers in the Premier League would top taking Tottenham into the Champions League.

"Managing a football club is a big job and your life is consumed by it. But I was speaking with a friend today whose wife has been taken to hospital and it doesn't look very good. When you hear things like that, how important is what we do? It really ain't that important, is it?"
