Tony Fernandes speaks of QPR 'love' and singles Clint Hill out for praise

QPR Mascot And Fans

The Queens Park Rangers chairman was thrilled with his side's 3-3 draw at Aston Villa.

QPR chairman Tony Fernandes was beaming on social media after his side's 3-3 draw at Aston Villa on Tuesday night.

The R's owner admits he felt a mixture of emotions during the thrilling Premier League encounter - 'despair' being one of them.

But it was Fernandes' pride that shone through more than anything on Twitter after the game, as he heaped praise on boss Chris Ramsey - and singled Clint Hill out for praise.

This season hasn't been all rosy for the veteran QPR defender, of course, who had to put up with a barrage of criticism from a supporter earlier this campaign, publicly confronting him and being restrained by team-mates.

On this occasion, though, Hill's 'fighting spirit' was lauded by his chairman after he scored for the R's at Villa.

Things don't get any easier for QPR, who now host Chelsea at Loftus Road on Sunday afternoon. For the first time in their campaign, it's the west London side's away form that's outshining their fortunes at home.

That will have to change against the league leaders, however, although QPR will retain hope of beating the drop even if they don't get a result against the Blues. Is the great escape on?
