BONUS: Harry Redknapp’s joke about Manchester United fans
The QPR squad had to take a coach back from Manchester following their heavy defeat, after being informed that they would not be able to book a private train carriage for the journey home.
Harry reportedly told The Sun:
We couldn’t get a carriage to ourselves, there’s no room.
The problem is half the United fans will be heading back to London, too.
