QPR boss Harry Redknapp is searching through his wardrobe this morning – as his club hang on to their Premier League place by a thread.
The superstitious manager (pic) reckons his Rangers club suit has brought him nothing but bad luck, with a disastrous performance from Chris Samba costing him at Fulham, and striker Bobby Zamora sidelined for three matches after being sent off in the 1-1 draw with Wigan last Sunday.
Rangers take on Everton in the forlorn hope they will pull off the impossible watched over by their new-look manager on the Goodison touchline.
“I’ve ditched my club suit, shirt, tie ditched my tie – but I’ve stayed with the wife,” he joked. “After 45 years she’s the best thing in my life.
“I know it’s just stupid isn’t it? At Bournemouth, when I was manager, we went 26 games unbeaten and I wore the same suit, shirt, tie and shoes every week. It practically walked to the ground on its own by the end.
“What’s it got to with someone scoring a goal? But there it is. If you wear a suit and get beat – it’s the suit’s fault? How could changing a suit make a difference if we win or lose? Crazy, eh?”
