Fernandes: QPR fans deserve better

The Malaysian has repeatedly backed Mark Hughes to continue as the club's manager despite their current plight that sees them rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table
Tony Fernandes has insisted QPR's fans deserve better after they continued their poor run of form with a 3-1 loss to Southampton at Loftus Road.

Goals from Rickie Lambert, Jason Puncheon and an Anton Ferdinand own-goal cancelled out a first-half strike from Junior Hoilett to leave the west London club four points adrift at the bottom of the table.

The airline mogul has repeatedly backed Mark Hughes to save the club, but fan unrest was clear to see at Loftus Road with a banner asking for Harry redknapp to be appointed.

Fernandes tweeted: "I feel gutted. I have put my heart and soul into this with my other shareholders and done all we can to give support to players and all management.

"I can only apologise to the QPR fans. We keep fighting.

"Let me tell you fans come first. Everyone including me let the fans down. Many of us need a hard look at themselves. QPR has amazing fans. They deserve better.
