Reading signing Leigertwood hits out at QPR fans

New Reading signing Mikele Leigertwood has hit out at some QPR fans.

The midfielder, who switched to Reading on loan soon after, insists there are no regrets, even though he has now missed out on a return to top flight football after Monday's Championship play-off final.

"I'm obviously disappointed not to go up, It's hard to take. But I'm still proud to be part of this team and part of this squad," he told the Ealing Gazette.

"I've got no problem with QPR. The fans have always been good to me there. They are always going to be disappointed if you misplace a pass now and again, but it doesn't help when the manager highlights that and says you have lost confidence.

"The manager called it as he sees it, that's fair enough. But he also made it clear I didn't have a future there, so there was no point in staying.

"I'm not going to sit around on the bench or not even travel to games and I made the decision to come and play games. I'm at a very good team.

"I've got no points to prove to anybody. I'm happy with how my career's going and how things have turned out, even though we have missed out on going up."
