Rodney Marsh reacts on Twitter to petition calling for Les Ferdinand sacking

The Queens Park Rangers icon took to social media - although he doesn't disagree that the R's man isn't doing a good job...

Rodney Marsh has expressed his dismay at a QPR fan petition calling for Les Ferdinand to be sacked.

Indeed, the former R's forward initially vented his frustration on December 30th 2015 but reiterated his feelings on New Year's Day, suggesting some supporters need to 'get a grip.'

However, Marsh isn't denying the fact there are some flaws with Ferdinand's leadership at QPR. He is quite possibly admitting his failings, in fact, but says questioning Ferdinand's loyalty is a 'disgrace.'

Ultimately, it all comes down to Tony Fernandes once more. Ferdinand was a great striker in his day. But how does that make him a good head of football operations?

The title in itself has been laughed at by many. Even if we were to call Ferdinand a director at QPR, what is his track record in the role?

By that logic, any former QPR player could be employed as the main man behind transfers and hirings. So far, Ferdinand hasn't set the world alight - nor has anyone at Loftus Road in recent months.

But you can see Marsh's point. Loyalty certainly isn't a problem. Recruiting someone who isn't suited for their role is.
