Harry Redknapp has backed club owner Tony Fernandes and insisted the January spending will not jeopardise the entire future of QPR.
Fernandes went on the offensive on Sunday and denied that he had placed the club's future in peril if they were to go down - the R's are six points adrift of safety with just 13 games remaining - and pledged he was going to remain at the helm whatever happens this season.
Redknapp has now defended the expensive acquisitions of Chris Samba and Loic Remy in January, claiming they will be worth more at the end of the season than they paid for them last month.
Redknapp argued: "They are good players. The club's invested, but at the end of the season, if it doesn't go well, they will get their money back on those players. I have not bought players who are crap, that we can't give away.
"Everyone is going on about Samba. If you want to sell Samba at the end of the season you can. He should be playing for a top-four team. He is a monster of a player. He is as quick as lightning. Fantastic in the air. He can play. That £12m could be £14m at the end of the season. So they have not done their money on Samba.
"We got Rémy for £7m. If he can score a few goals here, he will be worth £12m. I tried to buy him for £18m [for Tottenham] last year."
