Fernandes gives backing to Redknapp

QPR chairman Tony Fernandes has given his backing to under-fire manager Harry Redknapp and told the club's fans to do the same.

QPR fans. Being negative is so so wrong. We learn and we move. There are a few games left. So much to look forward to.

The person who should be most depressed is me. But I am not. We are building and building. And we make mistakes and we learn.

In troubled times now is the time to stand behind your club manager and players.

I stand by my players. Full stop and my manager.

Look a leader stands behind his troops. Now is the time we should rally round Harry and the players.

No one wants to lose. Last season was a disaster. Full stop. We have stopped the rot. Every year we will rebuild.

– QPR owner Tony Fernandes

If people want to make up falsities, then thats their prerogative. There are lots of excuses for last night, none are acceptable.

B88b118ac4509cef239735e976ec421a_normal

We simply weren't good enough and the lack of effort was appalling. We let down any fans who travelled. But its gone.

B88b118ac4509cef239735e976ec421a_normal

Nothing can be done about it now. We must stay together in tough times, otherwise we will be in serious danger of not fulfilling our aim.
