Redknapp, whose side face McClaren's Derby on Saturday, has said that Downes is an experienced coach.

'I'm pleased to have Wally [Downes] with us," Redknapp told Sky Sports News.

"He's a QPR man and a top coach. He's a character and very experienced. Steve [McClaren] was great for us and I'm sure Wally will be too.

"It was great to have Steve with us. He's another top coach. I was very impressed with him in his time here."

Downes was previously part of Sam Allardyce's staff at West Ham United.
