Redknapp Reveals Remy Blow

Queens Park Rangers boss Harry Redknapp has indicated that new-boy Loic Remy was missing from his side’s Saturday fixture after tearing a groin muscle in training.

The Frenchman was absent from QPR’s 0-0 draw against Norwich in the Premier League and Redknapp revealed that he was uncertain how long they would be without him.

The Loftus Road outfit splashed out for Remy in the January transfer window with what was a club-record £8 million and he is understood to be on about £80,000 a week in wages.

However, after the striker was left out of the squad for the visit of the Canaries, Redknapp has revealed that Remy suffered an injury in training, and as yet there is no set return date.

“He tore a groin muscle yesterday," Redknapp said when asked to explain the forward’s absence.

"No idea at the moment (how long he'll be out for).

"He got a groin (injury) last minute of training yesterday. Struck a ball and felt it go."

Despite the disappointment of losing Remy, Redknapp still had positives to take away from the game after another new recruit performed superbly.

28-year-old former Blackburn Rovers central defender Christopher Samba drew high praise from the QPR boss.

"Chris Samba was fantastic," Redknapp said. "He's not played since November because of the Russian winter break. We asked him how he was and he said he was about 40 percent fit.

"If that's 40 percent, I don't know what he'll be like when he's 100 percent. He was outstanding."
