Redknapp warns Rangers to shape up or ship out!

Harry Redknapp is willing to sack players who under-perform at Queens Park Rangers, in an attempt to save the club from certain relegation.

That allowed the appointment of former Tottenham manager Redknapp to take place over the weekend.
And addressing the media for the 1st time last night, he told his players to either shape up or ship out.
QPR will travel to the Stadium of Light to take on Sunderland tomorrow morning.
