HARRY Redknapp made it plain he needs a new striker as a top priority after taking over at QPR.
The new boss was unveiled to media this morning and took charge of the squad immediately after in preparation for tomorrow night’s clash at Sunderland.
Redknapp insisted he had seen enough of Rs’ in Saturday’s 3-1 defeat at Manchester United and on TV since the start of the season to find a way forward for the team bottom of the Premier League.
But the former Spurs boss admitted he was light on forward power after long-term injuries to Andy Johnson and Bobby Zamora (pic) leaves him with just Djibril Cissé and Junior Hoilett as options.
Redknapp said: “We are not overloaded with strikers here.
“Bobby Zamora's out long-term, Andy Johnson's got an injury – that's two good players to have missing. That's certainly an area we are short in
“If there's one or two in the window - a couple of loans – then we'd be interested. There won't be wholesale spending.
“The owners have been fantastic. I don't think too many clubs brought in more players than QPR did.
“Now it's up to the people who run the team to get the best out of them.”
