Harry Redknapp believes QPR's spending is being unfairly scrutinised.

A January spending spree that saw the Hoops twice break their transfer record, first by bringing in Marseille forward Loic Remy and then Anzhi's Christopher Samba. With the club's Loftus Road home only holding 18,500 and relegation to the Championship a distinct possibility, there have been those questioning whether QPR could end up in financial trouble.

Redknapp, though, believes the club are being unfairly focused upon, and said: "Other clubs spend money down there. Aston Villa have spent big money as well. People think 'They've only bought kids' - well go back to Darren Bent. You can go through a list of players there and they've spent good money, the Richard Dunnes and all these people."
