After right-back Jose Bosingwa was spotted by TV cameras laughing in the aftermath of the Rs demotion, the owner has described such scenes as "the low point" of his tenure

QPR chairman Tony Fernandes has hit out at a section of the relegated side's squad, accusing them of not caring about their performances.

The west London club's demotion to the Championship was confirmed on Sunday following a 0-0 draw away at Reading, with right-back Jose Bosingwa spotted by TV cameras laughing after the final whistle.

Fernandes has backed manager Harry Redknapp heavily in the transfer market - with an estimated €24 million spent on Christopher Samba and Loic Remy alone - but the Malaysian businessman has spoken of his disappointment at the perceived attitude of certain squad members.

"We are two years wiser than when we arrived. We want players that want to play for us. Players that want to win. Players who get disappointed like I do when we lose," Fernandes told the club's official website.

"It’s heart-breaking for me when we lose. I don’t want to go out, I just want to stay at home. And I am someone who has dealt with success and dealt with disappointment. But there is nothing I have gone through that is as disappointing as losing a football game.

"I haven't said it throughout the season because it wasn’t right to be said, but it hurt me when I saw some of the players who didn’t feel the way I felt. And in fact, in their case, it should be worse because this is their job, it’s their life.

"It wasn’t a good feeling. It was probably the low point for me when I saw the reaction of some of the players. It has shocked me because it is something that is alien to me. If I am taking someone else’s money, then I am going to work bloody hard for that person."
