Rio Ferdinand reacts to Queens Park Rangers’ defeat to Liverpool in Premier League

Rio Ferdinand believes that Queens Park Rangers gave a good account of themselves against Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday.

Queens Park Rangers defender Rio Ferdinand has praised his teammates’ work ethic against Liverpool on Sunday.

The London outfit lost yet again in the Premier League, as they stumbled to a narrow 3-2 defeat to the Reds at Loftus Road.

An own goal from Richard Dunne saw Liverpool take the lead midway through the second half, but Eduardo Vargas equalised in the 87th minute with his first Premier League goal (click here to read more).

At that point it seemed that QPR have done enough to earn a point from the clash, but there was yet more drama to come at Loftus Road.

Philippe Coutinho made it 2-1 to Liverpool on 90 minutes, but Vargas restored parity just moments later. Then in the dying seconds of the contest, Steven Caulker scored an own goal to hand Liverpool a 3-2 win.

Ferdinand, who joined QPR in the summer transfer window on a free transfer after leaving Manchester United at the end of last season, was an unused substitute against Liverpool.

The former England international centre-back, though, was pleased with his side’s hard work and determination and expressed his confidence of better results in the future on social networking site Twitter.
