QPR boss Redknapp admits Tottenham's Assou-Ekotto inconsistent

QPR boss Harry Redknapp admits on-loan Tottenham defender Benoit Assou-Ekotto hasn't been at his best.

The Spurs loanee was left out of the 1-1 draw at Millwall on Saturday.

"Benoit been up and down," Redknapp told the Fulham Chronicle. "I don't think he's found the level he had at Tottenham. I think he's found it difficult the change between the Championship and the Premier.

"I was watching a bit of the 2010 Premier, and there was Benoit crossing balls - to Niko (Kranjcar) as it happened.

"He was one of the best three left-backs in the Premier League, but he hasn't risen quite as high. In bits and pieces, hopefully he'll be a big player for us in the play-offs."
