Harry Redknapp expects Southampton fans to jeer him when his Queens Park Rangers side go up against his former club this weekend.

Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp expects to receive a less-than-warm welcome when he faces his former side Southampton this weekend.

The former Portsmouth boss, who celebrates his 66th birthday at the weekend, was dealt a blow in his mission to pull the R's out of the relegation zone when they lost 2-0 to Manchester United on Saturday.

"It is my birthday next Saturday and I thought there is no better way to spend it than getting 90 minutes of abuse at Southampton," Sky Sports News quotes Redknapp as saying.

"They'll all be calling me 'Scummer' for my time at Portsmouth. I thought that would be a great way to spend my birthday!"

QPR remain at the bottom of the Premier League table on 17 points.
