Harry Redknapp has blasted Liverpool out of proportion

Former Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has accused Liverpool FC of being “bang average”, adding they are the worst Reds side he’s seen in years.

Redknapp, who is currently out of work after leaving QPR last season, also believes they are lucky to have any points at all in this campaign.

“I don’t fancy Liverpool at all,” said Redknapp at the Telegraph Total Football Live event.

“I think it’s the worst Liverpool team I have seen in years. They look bang average. They are lucky to have any points.

“Bournemouth should have beaten them, they got a wonder goal at Stoke. OK, they played all right first-half at Arsenal.

“I think they will do well to finish in the top five. I am not with Liverpool at all this year.

“Having said that they will probably win the league.”

Redknapp, who also had long spells as manager at Bournemouth, West Ham and Portsmouth, has blamed the absences of Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher for some of the malaise.

He also questioned Rodgers’ use of defenders in the opening games of the season.

“They lost Steven Gerrard, their leader. What a player. They lost Jamie Carragher the year before. They’ve lost their characters,” he added.
