HARRY Redknapp is convinced Rangers will still stay up, even though they go into the new year rooted to the bottom of the table with only one win to their name.
But the Hoops boss says it will only happen if he can rid the club of some of the negativity he so far encountered from some of the players he has inherited.
“I think we'll stay up still,” he said after Sunday's 3-0 home defeat to Liverpool.
“You all think I'm mad, but I think we'll stay up and I want positive people around me.
“I said that in the dressing room, that those who are moping around, the subs who don't play, they're not playing because they're no good, or I'd be picking them.
“There's a few had miserable faces too often for some reason, and if people don't want to be here, they can come and see me and we'll try and fix them up with someone.
“I don't need them around me, I need people who are upbeat. You want everybody to work as a team if we are going to get out of trouble. You only need one or two who don't buy into that and you have a problem.”
Redknapp added: We've got Chelsea away and Tottenham at home next – two of the best teams in the country. But we've got to keep going and I still think we'll do it. We're not going to suddenly give up.
If we can get one or two in, it could make a difference, get Bobby Zamora fit, it gives us a target up there. Bobby could make a big difference.
“I feel we can still turn it around.”
