QPR supporters react on Twitter to Rio Ferdinand's retirement news

Rio Ferdinand

We round up the best reactions from Queens Park Rangers supporters on Rio Ferdinand's retirement.

Queens Park Rangers fans have been left annoyed by the news that Rio Ferdinand is set to retire at the end of the season.

Ferdinand announced his plans on the Jonathan Ross Show, which is due to be aired tomorrow night, and the latest publicity stunt has angered his current club's fans.

QPR's supporters feel that Ferdinand's heart hasn't truly been in playing at Loftus Road since joining this summer and, with little future in the game left, he could be lacking in motivation to perform.

Ferdinand was one of The R's marquee summer recruits, but he has already fallen out of favour at the club. The experienced centre-back was dropped to the bench for QPR's most recent fixture against Liverpool, and he looks set to remain there for the time being.

There was a hope that his arrival could have provided QPR with the experience and class needed to steer them away from relegation troubles, but Redknapp's man are struggling.

The London club are currently bottom of the Premier League and they will need to have a serious up-turn in standards if Ferdinand's last season is not to be a relegation one.

Here is the best reaction from QPR fans on Twitter.
