Tony Fernandes reacts on Twitter after embarrassing QPR defeat, backs Hasselbaink

Tony Fernandes admitted that QPR's defeat to Fulham on Saturday was 'embarrassing'.

Queens Park Rangers fell to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of West London rivals Fulham on Saturday afternoon, bringing their unbeaten run to an end at five games.

The R's had won two and drawn three of their previous five games, but they were obliterated inside the final stages of the first half at Loftus Road.

Ross McCormack got the ball rolling after 35 minutes, before Moussa Dembele made it 2-0 just five minutes, and Tom Cairney stunned the QPR fans with a third goal in stoppage time of the first half, meaning Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's side went in 3-0 down at half time.

QPR couldn't mount a real fight back in the second half, but Dutch midfielder Tjaronn Chery did pull back a late consolation.

R's fans were understandably unhappy to see their side lose a game to a big rival in such disappointing circumstances - and owner Tony Fernandes wasn't happy either.

Fernandes took to Twitter after the game to tell fans that nobody feels worse than he does after that defeat, but urged fans not to overreact.

He also backed manager Hasselbaink, stating that he knows what to do to get QPR winning games consistently, but acknowledged the defeat against Fulham was an embarrassing step backwards for the club.
