QPR boss Redknapp: 2-goal Austin absolutely fantastic

QPR boss Harry Redknapp was delighted with two-goal Charlie Austin after victory over Aston Villa.

Austin hit a half-volley after linking up with strike partner Bobby Zamora and swept home Eduardo Vargas' cross after the break to prove the difference between the two sides.

"(They were) two great finishes for Charlie," Redknapp told Sky Sports 1.

"I couldn't be more pleased, he is a smashing lad, (an) absolute fantastic boy.

"He's come out (of) the non-league scene, played down at Poole Town and Hungerford and God knows where he's been around the lower divisions, and to be scoring goals in the Premier League is great for him.

"There's no reason why he can't go on and get a really good tally of goals this year."
