QPR winger Matt Phillips has praised caretaker manager Chris Ramsey on his Kicca account.

Ramsey replaced former manager Harry Redknapp at Loftus Road in January when the veteran manager resigned, citing his inability to train the team properly because of health concerns as a reason.

Despite speculation about a host of managers being interviewed, Ramsey was given the job as caretaker manager until the summer, with the win over Sunderland at the Stadium of Light, the club's first away win this season, being a big plus point in the eyes of owner Tony Fernandes.

Now, winger Phillips has praised Ramsey for his impact on the team since he took charge.

“Chris Ramsey has bought [sic] in an air of calm and tidied a few things up,” wrote the winger.

“Now everyone understands what we are trying to do defensively and what we are trying to do attacking wise. He's very hands on as a coach, does all the sessions yet still has time to take you to one side for five or ten minutes to do a specific drill.”

Phillips has also said that the side has more than enough quality to avoid relegation from the Premier League, despite their current perilous position in the table.

QPR are currently 18th in the table, but are just three points behind Aston Villa in 17th place, with Tim Sherwood’s men winning on Tuesday evening to put the pressure on those below them. Phillips though, insists his side is good enough to stay up and just need to put a few wins together to be in with a chance.

“It's going to be tough to stay up but we have got more than enough quality in the side to do it,” added Phillips.

“We've massively underachieved so far and we’re not a bad side. We have got some great players and play some good football - we just need to starting stringing some wins together.”
