Ian Holloway on the recent developments at Queens Park Rangers

QPR Fans

Queens Park Rangers have recently parted ways with Chris Ramsey.

Ian Holloway has told Sky Sports Football League 72 podcast that he felt Chris Ramsey always faced a tough challenge at Queens Park Rangers due to his inexperience.

Ramsey was sacked as QPR boss earlier in the week, after a series of poor results had left them down in 13th place in the Championship table.

Holloway argues that Ramsey’s sacking was harsh, but he is pleased that Neil Warnock has taken over the reins at Loftus Road.

“I think that was always the issue, was he quite experienced enough for the QPR supporters to stick with him when things weren’t going right,” he said.

“But, as it is at the moment, I’m very pleased. I don’t think anybody wants to see anybody sacked – Chris didn’t deserve it, in my opinion – but as a QPR supporter, I’m more than happy with Neil at the helm.

“Anybody could be in the bottom half at the moment. The Championship is that type. It’s so difficult.

“The club is in good hands. Nobody knows it like Les Ferdinand.”

Ramsey had lost a lot of support at QPR, with sections of the crowd audibly airing their discontent towards the latter end of his time at the club.

Ramsey’s substitutions were regularly booed, and some of his team selection decisions were the source of a lot of bemusement.

QPR do still have time to rescue their season, and mount a promotion push as they are aiming for, but they will need to start hitting form immediately if they are to make up the lost ground.

The R’s have a six-point gap to make up if they are to squeeze into the play-off places, and they will be hoping that Warnock can hit the ground running after taking temporary charge of first-team affairs.
