QPR hit out at club's taking advantage of FA's decision not to dock points

QPR boss Neil Warnock is unimpressed with rival Championship club's who may appeal the decision to award the Championship title to Loftus Road. QPR were relieved to escape a 15-point deduction for breaches regarding alleged third-party ownership of player Alejandro Faurlin and suffered a £875,000 fine.

Warnock is now angry with a number of clubs, including Swansea City, who have criticised his side and could threaten to appeal the Football Association's decision.

"While the timing of the hearing has not been ideal, to say the least, I don't think the Football Association had any choice," he told the Independent.

"In a case like this it had to be thorough and judge it on all the facts. I know it took our lawyers a while to gather all the evidence.

"I just wish everyone was so thorough and patient. I have been disappointed by comments from some other clubs, who appear to be judging the case by some of the newspaper reports.

"Swansea City, having said they accept the verdict, are now talking about contesting it. They seem to have changed their minds since climbing from fourth to third. Funny that."
