West Ham United midfielder Joe Cole was happy to see Harry Redknapp again after their 1-1 draw with QPR.

Cole gave the man who handed him his professional debut a bottle of champagne to take away after full-time, but it may have tasted flat given the 31-year-old denied his former manager three precious points.

"I'll always be indebted to him for everything he's done and it's just a little gesture so he can have a drink on the way back to Loftus Road," said Cole.
