Harry Redknapp has laughed off rumours linking him with the manager's job at Queens Park Rangers.

QPR boss Mark Hughes has found himself under pressure with his side bottom of the Premier League having picked up just two points from their opening six matches. Chairman Tony Fernandes has called for patience from the club's faithful as he attempts to build stability at the club.

That has not stopped Redknapp being linked with the Loftus Road hotseat, but the former Tottenham manager insists there are no substance to the rumours.

"None whatsoever, not a chance," Redknapp told Sky Sports News. "Mark Hughes is a top manager, I have heard nothing from anybody. I had the same thing last week, I picked up the paper to see I am going to Ipswich because I know the chairman - I'm not going to Ipswich.

"The next thing I am going to Leicester. I have never had any contact with anybody at Leicester. They are flying - Nigel Pearson is doing a great job at Leicester. I don't know where it comes from - somebody makes the story up."

Redknapp, who was sacked by Spurs in the summer after being overlooked for the England job, says he has received offers to coach abroad, but is holding out for a job in the Premier League.

"I have had lots of offers to go abroad and work," he said. "I have had some fantastic offers but I am very happy living where we live so it would be difficult for me to move away. It would have to be something special to make me go abroad and work. I'll just wait and see what comes up."
