Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp is wary of the abuse he may receive from the Southampton fans on Saturday.

Queens Park Rangers boss Harry Redknapp has insisted that he is wary of the abuse he may receive from the Southampton fans at St Mary's on Saturday.

The 67-year-old previously managed Portsmouth, but also took charge of the Saints during their relegation season in 2005.

Redknapp told reporters: "They hate Portsmouth. There's hatred there. I was at Portsmouth - it was my club on the South Coast apart from Bournemouth - so I expect it."

"They were good to me at Southampton. When I was there, the fans were excellent, I didn't have a problem. I went there well into the season and it was tough. But I still enjoyed it."

Redknapp will travel to St Mary's Stadium with his QPR squad on Saturday for the tie that could see Saints go top of the Premier League table.
