QPR chief executive Philip Beard has insisted that Loic Remy did not join the club for financial reasons.
Striker Remy opted to sign for Rangers from Marseille this week rather than move to Newcastle, who were also interested in him.
Remy initially declined to even meet with Harry Redknapp when the R’s boss recently travelled to France to see him.
But QPR were always optimistic the 26-year-old could be persuaded to sign for them.
“This move isn’t motivated by money,” Beard declared on Rangers’ website.
“Loic has a passion and desire to achieve in his career and similar to [Julio] Cesar, he wanted to be part of our project.
“We know we haven’t achieved our goals so far this season, but he wanted to come in and help us build for the future.”
