Queens Park Rangers fan and player Nigel Quashie has backed the financial work done at the club by the present regime.

Mr Briatore and his fellow owners came under fire from sections of support who held a protest outside the South Africa Road stand following the home defeat to Scunthorpe United.

The owner - who left the ground once Rangers conceded their goal - has been under pressure from several quarters to sell his stake of the club after a string of managers continue to move on.

Quashie however believes the work done by the owners behind the scenes has secured the future of the club - and puts them in a far better position than former club Portsmouth.

He told the Express: 'The fans have their views but the club is stable and in a financially good position.

"Look at Portsmouth. Everyone thought the club was doing well but all of a sudden things turned upside down.

"The owners here are trying to get the club in a position where it doesn`t go under and you have to give them credit for that."


In the past Mr Briatore has been very keen to point this out to supporters, but the lack of genuine progression on the field coupled with issues surrounding the club has seen criticism mount.

Quashie's endorsement and reminder of the boom and bust nature of the Fratton Park demise may serve as a timely reminder that financial stability is of paramount importance in the current economic climate.
