Fernandes Tweets defiant defence over QPR ownership

Chairman Tony Fernandes chairman defended his stewardship of bottom Premiership club QPR following criticism on Twitter. QPR fans took to the social media site to vent their feelings, with one telling Fernandes, "You must take responsibility for this shambles."

However the Malaysian, a frequent user of Twitter, was quick to defend his position.

"No one else should take the responsibility of QPR plight than me. I am chairman and the buck stops with me. Period."

Fernandes, who took over at QPR in August 2011, later added in a separate Tweet: "Reading some of the rubbish on Twitter. Club is being rebuilt. We inherited little.

"New training ground coming. New stadium. New coaching. New youth recruitment. Good commercial team. So keep the faith."
