Clint Hill: Angry at the lack of fight shown by QPR team mates

QPR find themselves bottom of the table despite a significant spend in the January transfer window, and have taken two points from their last 21 available.

Hill, who has made 29 appearances this season, has been angered by what he considers to be a lack of fight within the squad.

"The honest truth is that we as players have let a lot of people down, from the chairman and owners to the fans," Hill said.

"It's scandalous that, with the team we have here and the amount of money the club has invested, we've gone out and repaid them by putting in embarrassing performances for large parts of the season and now find ourselves relegated.

"I think it would be easier to accept relegation if we had gone down fighting and every one of us had given everything we had.

"For whatever reason, as a team of individuals we have not performed to the standards required to stay in the Premier League."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
