Rangers remain rock-bottom of the Premier League after Saturday's 2-0 defeat by Manchester United. Harry Redknapp's side are seven points from safety with just 11 games left.

"It is another game down, but no-one has stretched the margin," said Mackie.

"It's important for us to try and get a result, a few back-to-back results, so we could be in there.

"It is going to be hard but we've got to keep going, keep trying to play and get a result. That's all you can do."

On Saturday's game, Mackie conceded: "I think we were playing the champions, in my opinion. They are a top draw side and he (Rafael) has scored a worldie. If he hadn't done that, maybe we were in the game.

"It's hard when we keep going 1-0 down and have to chase a game. It's tough."

QPR have matches coming up against relegation rivals Southampton, Aston Villa, Wigan and Reading, with Mackie adding: "Next is Southampton and if we can get results against the teams in and around us it is almost like a double game."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
