One of Queens Park Rangers' younger players has made his intentions for the future clear.
Queens Park Rangers fans will have woken up this morning with the feeling that only comes from seeing your side consigned to relegation on the back of a 6-0 away defeat.
With Chris Ramsey’s side bottom of the table, having won just 27 points from 36 matches and with a goal-difference of minus 28, there is not much for their fans to be pleased about. But a tweet from midfielder Michael Doughty has at least suggested that there are players at the club willing to fight to turn things round next season.
The 22-year-old made his Premier League debut earlier this season against Sunderland and he went on to feature against Hull City and Aston Villa, before injury ruled him out.
Despite that setback, and the fact his side have suffered relegation to the second tier, Doughty’s message suggested he has no intention of seeing the side he has been with since he was a child down on their luck for too long.
“The last few weeks have been some of the toughest mentally,” the QPR player wrote, “Character building for sure but I’m not too far away.
“So disappointed to be in the position that we are but I’ve been at the club since the age of 13 and care very much about playing a part in its resurgence.”
It is time to give the chance to players who are passionate about QPR, who want to play for the badge and who have every intention of ensuring their absence from the top flight is for as little time as possible.
