QPR boss Harry Redknapp doesn't feel under threat from the appointment of Les Ferdinand as football operations manager.
Redknapp has, in the past, openly admitted he could not work under a director of football.
"I've got a lot of time for Les. He's just looking at the youth set-up and everything else.
"Tony (Fernandes) wanted to bring him in. He's an iconic figure at the club, he was a top player here. Tony felt he'd be good to have.
"That's where we are at the moment, who knows where we will be next week. Who knows?
"Head of football operations, it's a stupid title really, isn't it? I think he' s just looking at the scouting and all that type of stuff. I speak to Les all the time, I've just had a cup of tea with him.
"I knew he was coming. The chairman asked me what I thought about Les and I said 'I love him'. Great lad."
