Paladini, Ecclestone delighted as QPR avoid points deduction

QPR powerbrokers were delighted to be confirmed as Championship winners yesterday.

The R's avoided a points penalty for their signing of Alejandro Faurlin.

Rangers chairman Gianni Paladini, the man who brought Faurlin to west London in 2009, told the BBC: "After so many years, we deserve to be where we are.

"A lot of unfair things have been going on. We did nothing wrong. But it's all over now. I never felt guilty about anything because I did nothing wrong."

The fine is a drop in the ocean compared to the fortunes promotion will bring, and certainly small change to their billionaire co-owner Bernie Ecclestone.

The Grand Prix chief, speaking in Turkey ahead of Saturday's race, said: "It would have been terrible if it had been anything else. It wouldn't have been fair, so I think they (the FA) have acted correctly with what they've done."
