Redknapp was set to be reunited with former assistants Joe Jordan and Kevin Bond after revealing QPR's board were close to agreeing a deal to bring them on board.
He added of his new bosses, who sacked Mark Hughes on Friday: "They don't deserve to be where they are because they have put so much in during the summer.
"They brought 12... loads of players in. They've done so much work on this training ground, they've invested, and they are nice people.
"That, for me, was important. I think they found it very hard last week to let Mark go, that's for sure.
"They're not ruthless people, they're nice people. So I would love to bring some success to them. They deserve it."
