Karren Brady has positive comments for Queens Park Rangers

Tony Fernandes

West Ham United vice-chairman Karren Brady speaks highly of Queens Park Rangers chairman Tony Fernandes.

West Ham United vice-chairman Karren Brady has suggested in The Sun that Queens Park Rangers will get straight back to the Premier League if they get relegated.

QPR are currently at the bottom of the league table with 27 points from 35 matches, nine points behind 17th-placed Newcastle United.

Rangers need to win against Manchester City away from home at the Etihad Stadium today in order to maintain their slim chances of avoiding the drop to the Championship.

The London outfit look doomed for relegation, but Brady believes that they will bounce straight back to the Premier League, while speaking highly of the club’s chairman Tony Fernandes.

“Fernandes has done everything short of running on to the pitch and taking a penalty to ensure that Rangers are not relegated this season, just a year after winning the Championship play-offs,” the 46-year-old wrote in her football diary in The Sun (Monday entry).

“Yet all the spending, all the promises kept and, perhaps I should add, some tinkering, have not succeeded. Unless, of course — as seems highly unlikely — they win their last three games of the season.

"The chairman gets his apologies in first in a Twitter message of hope and despair and it wouldn’t surprise anyone to see his team back in the Premier League next year.”

Fernandes is a very good chairman and genuinely wants the good of the club, and he will certainly want QPR to return to the Premier League as soon as possible.

The problem is that the Championship is hugely competitive, perhaps even more competitive than the Premier League.

If QPR go down to the second tier of English football, then they will need to spend wisely and sign the right players to get them back up.
