HARRY Redknapp has two fit goalkeepers tomorrow – but which one should he select against neighbours Fulham?

Both internationals, both come with their own strengths but with Rob Green now back in the picture – Harry has a dilemma on his hands whether to stick or twist this weekend.

It would be fair to say that Rob Green has been treated disappointingly since his summer move from West Ham United – having first been assured a first team place then knocked back in dramatic fashion by Mark Hughes.

Green has reported that Hughes offered him the opportunity to leave barely months into his contract following the signing of Julio Cesar – rather making a mockery of the former manager’s statement that he always wanted two ‘keepers of such calibre.

Cesar has performed well and oddly enough seldom can you attribute a conceded goal to the Brazilian, who has cut a forlorn figure between the sticks since moving to W12.

Following on from his injury, Green – who has spent most of the season with a face like a wet Wednesday on the bench – was called into action against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light and has now made a bid to keep his spot.

A couple of trademark Green moments has seen him parry efforts back into the six-yard box, but by and large he has performed admirably, and certainly done nothing to be dropped for the returning Cesar against Fulham this Saturday.

In Cesar however, QPR have a ‘keeper that has won it all and seen it all – and certainly would not have come to Loftus Road if there was any risk he would not be automatic first choice – coming back from his injury, he would expect to be placed back into the fold this weekend.

So we come to the crux of the argument, the decision that Redknapp has to make. Does he make the easy decision? – keeping with the status quo and playing Green? Or does he drop the former West Ham United man and risk damaging his confidence in the club permanently.

It is an unenviable task the Mr Redknapp has in front of him, but decisions like these could be crucial if Rangers are to pick up the points necessary between the now and the end of the season.
