Fernandes hits back at ‘ridiculous’ tweets from fans after QPR defeat

Tony Fernandes hit back at angry QPR fans on Twitter on Monday morning.

Many supporters have urged the Rangers chairman to sack manager Harry Redknapp in the wake of the 2-0 defeat at West Ham.

Fernandes tweeted “Just not good enough” immediately after Sunday’s game and later added: “Stand tall and be brave . we got good players. Its time they get fit and get ready for battle.”

He has since followed that up with a number of tweets appearing to back Redknapp, who has blamed Rangers’ woes on Loic Remy’s departure and fitness issues among the squad.

Fernandes tweeted: “A couple of things.we got promoted. Please note where other clubs who got relegates are .pls remember how many clubs got straight up.

“We have always been on the backfoot with players . we had so many loans last year as we cleared out .

“That’s it .there should be no more excuses from anyone especially me .buck stops at me . I’m up for the battle .

“Is sacking the answer. When we met mark hughes go we still went down. Is it tactics ,is it players ,is it coaching ,is it fitness,

“When we lost remy 48 hours before deadline day it was huge huge blow. Huge blow. But we fight on. Stop sendind me ridiculous tweets

“I’m not stupid or a quitter. All I can assure fans is as always we will be transparent and leave no stone unturned to stay up and build.”

Summer signing Rio Ferdinand has also come in for criticism, having made a number of errors since his arrival at the club.

“Not the result we wanted yesterday! The next two weeks we will be working hard as a team to put things right.. Thanks for all your support,” the former England star tweeted.
