QPR boss Redknapp: Ferdinand knows he must fight for his place

QPR boss Harry Redknapp admits he's omitted Rio Ferdinand on form for the past two games.

Redknapp spoke this morning about the defender and his three-match ban for comments made on Twitter.

The manager also spoke of Ferdinand's playing situation:

"Rio understands there is competition for his place. He is out on the training ground first every day, he is vocal in the dressing room. He is a top guy and understands that he has to wait his turn."

On social media use, Redknapp added: "As far as I see it a personal thing rather than something that should affect a club.

"I don't know what Twitter is, I don't want to know to honest. It doesn't interest me one little bit. If I understood it I might be able to talk about it."
