Neil Warnock saw QPR triumph 3-0 win at Sheffield United but was quick to defend keeper Paddy Kenny from the home crowds hostility. The 32-year-old kept a clean sheet in his first return to Bramall Lane since ending his eight-year spell at the club in the summer and was subjected to "unfair" abuse, according to Warnock.
"Paddy expected the hot reception and knew he would get one," Warnock said.
"It is difficult because you only hear one side when you're up here.
"The lad had his wages slashed while he was banned. He asked for a new contract, didn't get a new contract and was told to wait until Christmas before he would get one.
"Then I come in and they offer him a new contract.
"But I think it was the right time for Paddy to get away and have two or three years in a different environment.
"I bet the people at the hospital he used to go and see, and the people he went and presented prizes to when he was the only player that would turn up, are not disappointed with him."
