Queens Park Rangers chairman Tony Fernandes takes to Twitter to defend himself and the team.

Queens Park Rangers chairman Tony Fernandes has launched a stinging attack on criticisms of him and the team’s performances so far this season.

The London outfit regained promotion to the Premier League at the end of last season and were expected to fare better than the other two promoted sides, Burnley and Leicester City.

However, after seven rounds of matches in the English top flight, QPR find themselves at the foot of the league table with just four points from seven matches.

Harry Redknapp’s side have some quality players such as former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand and ex-Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Sandro, but Rangers are still struggling to pick up points, their latest defeat coming on Sunday.

An own goal from Nedum Onuoha and a header from Diafra Sakho just before the hour mark saw West Ham United win the Premier League clash 2-0 at the Boleyn Ground.

There have been criticisms of QPR’s failure to sign a replacement for Loic Remy, who left for Chelsea late in the summer transfer window.

Redknapp’s future has also been cast into doubt, but chairman Fernandes took to social networking site Twitter on Monday to defend the club.
