Chris Ramsey: My QPR team lack quality

Queens Park Rangers boss Chris Ramsey thinks his team are in relegation trouble because of their lack of quality.

Queens Park Rangers manager Chris Ramsey has admitted to the Guardian that his side are in relegation trouble due to a lack of quality in their squad.

The R's picked up a point against West Ham United at the weekend, but it wasn't enough to move them away from the bottom three and Ramsey believes the problems this season stem from the personnel.

QPR now have four games left to save themselves - two of which come against Liverpool and Manchester City - and Ramsey was pulling no punches ahead of the tricky remaining fixtures.

“We have to approach them in the same way we have approached games against other big teams. We’ve held our own against other big teams in the division but, you end up where you are because of a lack of quality,” he said.

Ramsey can take little blame for the lack of quality in QPR's squad as he has simply had to make do with what he was left with since taking over.

Harry Redknapp was the man tasked with proving the R's with enough quality to stay in the Premier League, but the experienced boss's recruitment in the past two transfer windows has not been good enough.

Most of Redknapp's summer signings did not work out, with the side's key players generally being the core of the group which got them promoted from the Championship last term, and there can be no doubting that Ramsey has had a tough job at Loftus Road.

Even so, QPR supporters will feel that they have enough quality in their team to see them over the line and the hope is that they will finally play to their potential, as the season reaches crunch time.
