Harry Redknapp hit in the head with match ball, QPR immediately concede equalizer

With QPR up 2-1 against Millwall in the final minutes of the game, the ball went into the crowd. When a fan tried to toss it back to Millwall defender Paul Robinson, it ended up hitting QPR manager Harry Redknapp in the side of the face. Harry did not take kindly to this and cursed out the fan. As we've long known, Harry does not enjoy being hit in the head with balls.

While Redknapp was distracted, the match carried on with a different ball and Millwall promptly scored an equalizer in the second minute of injury time to earn a draw. And much like with his taxes, it seemed that Harry Redknapp didn't know what happened.

After the match, Redknapp told Sky Sports that the ball was first thrown into first-team coach Joe Jordan's face, smashing his glasses, before someone else hit him with it.

If this was ever going to happen to anyone, it was always going to be Harry Redknapp.
