Redknapp, who joined the club in November 2012, and took charge of 105 matches at Loftus Road, informed QPR chairman Tony Fernandes of his decision to resign this morning, citing the need for immediate surgery on his knee as the reason for the sudden decision.

“I have had such a fantastic time at QPR,” said Redknapp.

“I would like to thank the Board, the players and all my staff, and especially the supporters who have been absolutely fantastic to me since I arrived at the club for their tremendous support.

“Sadly I need immediate surgery on my knee which is going to stop me from doing my job in the coming weeks. It means I won’t be able to be out on the training pitch every day, and if I can’t give 100 per-cent I feel it’s better for someone else to take over the reins.

“My relationship with Tony Fernandes has been one of the highlights of my footballing career and I wish the club every success. I am confident they will survive in the Premier League this year.”

Fernandes reiterated that despite reports to the contrary, his relationship with Redknapp was excellent.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Harry for everything he has done for QPR during his time in charge,” said the QPR chairman.

“We part on good terms and I would personally like to wish him all the best for the future.”

He leaves the club in 19th position in the Premier League one point away from safety.

Les Ferdinand and Chris Ramsey have been placed in temporary charge of first team affairs.
