Ramsey: Bad eggs didn’t help

Relegation was confirmed on Sunday when the R’s were trounced 6-0 by Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Earlier in the week Joey Barton blamed “bad eggs” for Rangers’ poor season, and boss Ramsey admits the midfielder has a point.

“I think if you go to any club there are going to be bad eggs,” Ramsey said.

???I think what Joey alluded to is that there are people that could have probably helped us that haven’t helped us. I don’t really want to expand on that.???

As for the club???s immediate financial future, Ramsey has faith in those holding the reins, and stability can be restored.

“I think the owners will save us from going over the edge,” Ramsey added.

???I don’t really understand the bits and bobs of what’s gone on before I came but I think they are very good owners and board members that will try to put something in place to make sure that QPR doesn’t end up like some of the other clubs we have seen that have slid all the way down the divisions, and ending up in the financial mire.”

Chairman Tony Fernandes tried to reassure fans about the future by telling the club’s website: “Obviously we’re all very disappointed that our fate has been sealed but I don’t want to dwell on it. I want to focus on the future.

“We are aware of the financial implications of relegation and, as a group of shareholders, we remain 100 per-cent committed in the short, medium and long term.

“We have an opportunity to rebuild again and put in place the foundations to deliver long-term success and stability at QPR.

“I can reassure all Rangers supporters that the building blocks are in place to move things in the right direction for the future.”

Barton expressed his disappointment via Twitter: “Gutted for everyone involved with the football club. Today was embarrassing but it’s not been good enough since July.

“You get out of life what you put in. Hurts to say but the league table does not lie. We don’t deserve to stay in this league.

“Sorry to all the fans who have spent their hard earned money supporting us up and down the country all season. I feel what you feel.”
