Former Tottenham boss Terry Venables can understand QPR's dramatic move to sack Mark Hughes and replace him with Harry Redknapp.

Venables wrote in The Sun: "If anybody can lead a club out of a crisis like the one that is facing Rangers at the moment, Redknapp can.

"That is no reflection on Hughes, a man I signed as a player and a man I have huge respect for as both a person and a manager.

"But in this situation I feel Redknapp may be better suited to this situation."
