QPR latest: Zamora 'genuinely' believes in survival, Redknapp finds unlikely ally in Neil Warnock

Team Lotus Unveil QPR Sponsorship With Neil Warnock

The latest Queens Park Rangers news, views and rumours.

Bobby Zamora

QPR striker Bobby Zamora holds genuine belief that his side will not get relegated this season.

The Rs fell out of the Premier League the campaign before last, only for Zamora's play-off final winner to earn them promotion back from the Championship at the first time of asking last term.

One win in eight games, however, sees QPR sit bottom of the league standings - but the striker says he 'genuinely thinks' the club will survive the relegation battle.

“I missed everything. The Premier League is 1,000 times bigger than the Championship and everyone wants to play in it," Zamora told the London Evening Standard.

“I genuinely think we won’t go down though. We have a good set of players and if we repeat our performance against Liverpool, the results will come. The gap to the others is not that big. At any time of the year, if you string three wins together, you’re flying.”

Neil Warnock

Meanwhile, Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock has backed Harry Redknapp over the Adel Taarabt saga.

The Palace boss used to manage QPR himself, meaning he knows exactly what Taarabt is like.

“I think I’ve made comments like Harry has in the past and that’s how it is,” Warnock told reporters.

“I had a great 12 months [at QPR] but I realise how difficult it is to have him [Taarabt] on board. It’s very difficult."

QPR host Aston Villa at Loftus Road on Monday night, while Warnock takes his Crystal Palace side to West Brom on Saturday.
