Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer fears for QPR's future if they're relegated.

Shearer wrote in The Sun: "QPR are doomed and they will leave this Premier League as an expensive gamble that did not pay off.

"One that could even consign the club to the black hole that the likes of Portsmouth and Leeds have disappeared into.

"The financial implications of their drop, parachute payment or not, are huge given their expensive outlay on transfer fees and wages.

"Sadly, for many fans, their demise will represent why they feel detached from the modern game.

"Players paid huge salaries and not enough of them looking like they have the ability or desire to fight for the club the supporters love."
