HARRY Redknapp admitted he feared being without Bobby Zamora for six weeks due to ankle ligament damage.
The QPR striker made a surprise return to the starting XI for yesterday's vital victory against Sunderland – just a fortnight after limping off in the defeat to Manchester United.
But the former Fulham frontman made a rapid recovery to put in an impressive display as Rangers ran out 3-1 winners to keep their survival hopes alive.
“Zamora wasn’t really fit,” said Redknapp.
“He’s done his ankle ligaments. The physios said a week ago he’d be out for six weeks.
“He was so desperate to play - others wouldn’t have put themselves up.
“He was only 60 per cent fit, so you’ve got to give him a lot of credit. The effort he’s put in was fantastic.”
