All the Harry Redknapp resigns jokes as he leaves Queens Park Rangers the day after transfer deadline day, citing an upcoming knee operation as the reasoning behind his decision.


After chairman Tony Fernandes’s announcement that there would be no further spending before the close of the transfer window, Redknapp seems to have taken the opportunity to leave the club – blaming upcoming knee replacement surgery that would apparently prevent him from carrying out his duties in full.
