Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp reveals that he suffered with health problems during last season's failed attempt to stay in the Premier League.

Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp has revealed that he feared for his health while coaching his side last season.

Rangers were relegated from the Premier League after Redknapp took over from Mark Hughes in November 2012.

"[The players were] very arrogant and contemptuous. They would rather come in late every day and just pay the fine than behave in a professional manner," Redknapp wrote in his autobiography that is being serialised in the Daily Mail.

"Some would train all week, then have a mystery injury and cry off for the match on Saturday. Rarely would anyone play through a knock or a tweak. I don't know how they had the front to pick up their wages some weeks. I was worrying about the effect it was having on my health, too.

"After the defeat at Everton I hadn't slept. I looked at myself in the mirror and I didn't look right, I didn't feel right. I was getting funny feelings, my body ached and my chest felt tight. I was really worried that I was going to give myself a heart attack or a stroke."

Redknapp's Rangers are currently second in the Championship.
