Quotes

In an even more astonishing and insulting statement, QPR's Harry Redknapp said: "He's not murdered anyone, he's not a rapist or a paedophile. He's made a big mistake. It happens. He's a family man, a football man. Obviously, someone is after him, ain't they?"
Not all the deals were bad and as a sign the relationship between Mackay and Tan was still intact, the manager said of Steve Caulker's arrival: "This has been completed in a couple of days and I thank Tan Sri Vincent Tan for his help in making this possible."
"A few managers are quite upset about the way the LMA has handled the issue," added the former Stoke City and Tottenham striker. "The statement was pretty poor. You don't defend the indefensible."
"And I would like to think we can build more of a profile based on the successes of the bursary coaches who have done well at their clubs."
