QPR latest: Owner's outburst on Twitter, Krancjar reacts to Hammer blow, Souness speaks

Loftus Road QPR

All the Queens Park Rangers latest news including Tony Fernandes' rant on Twitter, Nico Krancjar comments and Graeme Souness' criticism.

Sky Sports pundit and eight-time league title winner Graeme Souness, who won trophies with Liverpool and Rangers, appraised Queens Park Rangers's performance against West Ham United at the weekend and was left unimpressed due to a perceived low work-rate from the West Londoners.

“If you haven’t got players willing to work hard, you’ve got nothing,” he is quoted to have said.

Regardless of the stature of each individual in the Queens Park Rangers roster, the collective are nothing if each player does not "put in a real stint for their manager" - in this case, Harry Redknapp, who is under mounting fan pressure to deliver.

Club owner Tony Fernandes begs to differ.

He said on Twitter: "There should be no more excuses from anyone especially me. The buck stops with me [and] I'm up for the battle.

"I'm not stupid or a quitter. All I can assure fans is as always we will be transparent and leave no stone unturned to stay up and build.

"I don't think [it's a case of the] players [not] trying yesterday [because if you] look at the stats… the goal was never a goal and that took the wind out of us. The second goal was against the run of play.

"[There can be] no excuses. We still should have done better."

Midfielder Niko Kranjcar pulls no punches with his post match offering as he said if the club foster a desire to stay in the Premier League then they must do much better.
