''I WANT BECKHAM AT QPR'' HARRY REDKNAPP


Queen Park Rangers new coach Harry Redknapp has refused to rule out a move for David Beckham but insisted his priority is to buy a striker during the transfer window.

QPR are rooted to the bottom of the Barclays Premier League table after taking just four points from their opening 13 games.

Redknapp watched his side lose at Manchester United on Saturday after taking over the managerial reigns from Mark Hughes who was sacked last week.

And speaking at his first press conference as QPR boss on Monday, the former Tottenham manager admitted Beckham, who will leave LA Galaxy next week, could be an option.

'I've never discussed it. He's a top class professional and would be great to have around the place.'

Redknapp accepted there would be no 'wholesale spending' in the transfer window after the club recruited extensively during the summer, but admitted they were very short up front.

Bobby Zamora and Andy Johnson are both long-term injury victims and the new boss said: 'We are not overloaded with strikers here. That's certainly an area we are short in.'
 

Redknapp insisted there would be no personality clashes with Adel Taarabt, whom he sold while manager of Tottenham.

Redknapp has saved Portsmouth from relegation and took a Tottenham side from bottom of the table to the Champions League the following season.

But Redknapp has admitted trying to keep QPR in the top flight will be his toughest challenge yet.
