Cole makes champagne gesture to old boss

Published Add your comment

Joe Cole attempted to soften the blow of his equalising goal and move to West Ham by handing QPR manager Harry Redknapp a bottle of champagne following the sides' 1-1 Barclays Premier League draw at Upton Park.

Cole's first West Ham goal for 10 years earned the hosts a deserved point as Loic Remy was denied a dream debut for QPR, who were cast four points adrift at the foot of the standings.

Cole was tracked by Redknapp - who signed him for West Ham as a schoolboy - but he opted for a second spell at the Hammers, and said: "It was difficult to turn Harry down - he's a top man and a great manager. I had another one (bottle) as well but I sent it to Harry for on the coach."
