Harry Redknapp resigned as QPR manager on Tuesday, claiming knee replacement surgery would dent the club’s Premier League survival fight.
Here, Press Association Sport’s Tom Allnutt takes a look back at Redknapp’s time at Loftus Road.
November 2012: Takes over from Mark Hughes at QPR. The club were bottom of the Premier League with just four points from 12 games.

October 2014: Becomes involved in an ugly spat with Adel Taarabt, claiming the midfielder was “three stone overweight”. Taarabt responded by showing his stomach in an interview with the Daily Mail and chairman Tony Fernandes was forced to intervene.
January 2015: QPR’s form continues to slide and a newspaper report suggests Redknapp is one game from the sack before a 2-0 defeat to Manchester United. Redknapp blamed the story on an insider trying to destabilize the club and Fernandes issued a statement, insisting the manager would remain until the end of the season.
