Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp says newspaper allegations likening the squad's recent training camp in Dubai to a ''stag party'' are way off the mark, accusing a football agent of attempting to destabilize the club.
A report in British newspaper the Daily Mirror on Saturday quoted three un-named players saying last month's week-long trip was like a ''holiday camp'' with ''plenty of drinking''. One of the players said it was ''unacceptable and unprofessional'' and another branded the club ''a mess.''
Redknapp reacted after the team's 2-1 Premier League win at Southampton by saying it was a ''disgusting story ... completely full of untruths.''
Redknapp believes it was leaked by an agent and refused to accept any players had spoken out.
QPR is last in the Premier League.
