Rodney Marsh fears Queens Park Rangers could be heading for relegation under Harry Redknapp this season.According to Marsh, his former club have not recruited well enough after winning promotion and are short on quality in all areas.The crushing defeat to Manchester United on Sunday was the second successive away game QPR have been hit for four.Speaking on Extra Time after the Old Trafford mauling, Marsh said. “I really fear that if they carry on playing that way then QPR could become a yo-yo team.“At the start of the season I thought they had enough to stay up but in those two games against Spurs and Man United they looked dreadful.“They look like a team that is short all over the pitch.”And Marsh admits he is unsure whether Redknapp can turn their fortunes around, despite rating the 67-year-old as a top manager.“I’ve been a friend of Harry Redknapp’s for 25 years, going back to when he was a player at West Ham. I always give him the benefit of the doubt in any situation because it wasn’t that long ago when he was taking Spurs from bottom to fourth place,” continued the ex-England international.“He clearly is a man that knows the game, he knows his football, and I think he is a terrific manager. But the big question is, can he get the best out of this group of players?“It seems to me that the answer, in the short term at least, is ‘no’. I’m looking at some of the QPR players and they look like a bunch of rag tag players that have been thrown together in a team. They don’t look like they know what they are doing, to be honest.”
