QPR have submitted a revised planning application to build a new training ground at Warren Farm in Ealing, the club have announced.

Rangers hope to get the green light for the fresh design after encountering problems since the scheme received approval in December 2013.

A decision regarding planning consent is expected in the summer.

QPR director of football Les Ferdinand said:

This is a vitally important project for the club and one in which I will have a hands on role.

We are working closely with Populous and Ealing Council to ensure QPR has a state-of-the-art facility that brings the First Team, Academy and Community together in a unique hub.

QPR has always been a club that takes pride in its local community and we will ensure that bond is strengthened with this exciting move to Warren Farm.

Owner Fernandes tells QPR fans not to worry

QPR chairman Tony Fernandes has told fans not to despair about their current league position and insists those in charge at Loftus Road care about the future of the club.

A 2-1 defeat at Liverpool on Saturday leaves Rangers seven points from Premier League safety with just three games remaining and the west London side now look like falling out of the division for the second time in three years.

"QPR Fans. Don't despair. Lots to look forward to. You have shareholders who care. Not perfect. Made mistakes. But we care," Fernandes tweeted.

"We have learnt a lot about players, managers, agents. Onwards and upwards. 3 out of 4 seasons in the Premier League.

"It's not over till it's over. Got three games left. Need to play for all the game. Not just 85 mins and who knows.

"See you at City. That's it for the moment. Stay positive. Hard but that's all we got. You he (sic) shareholders who are decent and care."

QPR manager hopeful of beating Liverpool at Anfield

Time is running out but Queens Park Rangers manager Chris Ramsey remains confident his relegation-threatened side can revive their fortunes, starting with a Premier League victory over Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday.

QPR, in 19th place, have four games remaining to avoid the trapdoor to the Championship but travel to Anfield having not won there in the league since a 3-1 victory in 1991.

"Liverpool have the quality and resilience to bounce back. They've been written off two or three times this season and Brendan's done a fantastic job in bringing them back to the levels that warrant a team of Liverpool's stature.

"But we believe we can beat anyone on our day and we're hoping that our day will be on the weekend."

Zamora has only scored three goals this season but his physical threat and work rate could prove valuable as Rangers look to close a four-point gap between themselves and safety.

However, the 34-year-old is struggling to be fit for Saturday's visit to Liverpool as he wrestles with a hip injury that Ramsey says has been a long-standing problem.

You wouldn't know that by the grit and determination he's showed and the way he's worked hard towards keeping us up. He's had a long-term injury which he's been playing with. I'm very pleased he's got himself out there to try to help us.

Bobby has a bad hip but he's got a bad few things. He's a man who has taken a lot of bumps and bruises because he's the one who is always in the battle. It can be anything from ankle to hip to shoulder but whatever happens, I'm sure he'll be involved again before the end of the season.
