BOBBY Zamora and Loic Remy can fire QPR out of the Premier League relegation zone, says Rangers boss Harry Redknapp.
Redknapp watched his boys slump to another defeat at home to title favourites Manchester United this afternoon as Ryan Giggs and Rafael Da Silva goals did the damage at Loftus Road.
The defeat leaves Rangers rock bottom with 11 games to go and needing a remarkable turnaround to escape the trapdoor, however Redknapp is refusing to throw in the towel.
He is clinging on to the hope that injury-plagued duo Zamora and Remy, who have yet to appear together for the Hoops, can form a lethal partnership up front.
The pair both featured against the Red Devils today, Remy coming on in the second period in place of his limping counterpart, and Redknapp is expecting fireworks from his strikeforce.
“I still feel we’ll get out of it,” said a defiant Redknapp after the United loss.
“It [defeat] leaves us bottom today but we won’t be bottom at the end of the season.
“With Bobby Zamora and [Loic] Remy coming back from injury I see two forwards that can start scoring some goals between now and the end of the season for us.
“That’s been our problem, we don’t score enough goals. Between them I can see them doing some damage to teams.”
Although both featured today, Zamora's ankle problem could see Redknapp wait a little longer for the chance to see both of his stars on the field together.
“Unfortunately Bobby’s now done his ankle,” Redknapp added.
“If his ankle isn’t too bad then he and Remy could be a good partnership. We need to get a team together on Monday, bed them in and work with them.
“I think there’s enough there to give us an opportunity. I’m still optimistic. You probably think I’m mad, but I don’t think I am.”
