QPR chairman Tony Fernandes says it is "not critical" for the club to win promotion back to the Premier League this season despite their £177.1m debt, reports BBC Sport.

QPR chairman Tony Fernandes says it is "not critical" for the club to win promotion back to the Premier League this season despite their £177.1m debt, reports BBC Sport.

Rangers, who are fourth in the Championship, lost £65.4m as they were relegated last season.

"Achieving promotion this season is not critical to our long-term strategy, but remains our short-term goal," he said.

"If we fail, the support is there and there is no need for any more advances to build a squad."

He added: "We are now in a position where we can work with what we have, and raise capital to invest in the squad by selling players who are not part of the manager's plans."
