The latest Queens Park Rangers news, views and rumours.

Leroy Fer

QPR midfielder Leroy Fer admits he wants to 'be more important' for the Rs ahead of their clash with Liverpool on Sunday.

The west London side host the Reds at Loftus Road this weekend in desperate need of a Premier League win - they have only registered one victory in their opening seven league fixtures.

And, going into the game, the 24-year-old says he wants to do better and play a bigger role for his side.

“I always want to do better and always try to step up my game,” the Dutchman told QPR's official website. “I think my form has been alright but I can still do better and become more important for the side.

“I want to work on getting more attacking passes in for the team, to try to get someone scoring and to score myself too.

“I want to be more important for QPR.”

Shaun Derry

Meanwhile, QPR fan-favourite Shaun Derry has given his views on Harry Redknapp's current situation; Derry was part of the Rs side that beat Liverpool in 2012 and is now Notts County boss.

“I spoke to Harry last Friday, and he’s down at the moment because of the results, but still focused on getting Rangers up the table,” Derry is quoted as saying by GetWestLondon.

“He’s always been in a situation where he’s been at the top end of a table with his teams because he’s a good manager. When you're losing you’re the number one target, and they need to find a win pretty soon, if I’m honest.

“The thing with the Premier League is that because you’ve only got 38 games a season, the likelihood is you’ve got a week to hurt after a bad result. In the Championship you might have a game on the Tuesday where you can bounce straight back."
