QPR chairman Tony Fernandes invariably wears his heart on his sleeve, with the Malaysian often quick to criticise - or back up - his players on Twitter.

Fernandes, the director of AirAsia, was in similarly vociferous mood today, after his QPR side slipped to a narrow 1-0 defeat at Chelsea that left them anchored in the Premier League relegation zone.

"I am still in shock," Fernandes Tweeted following the conclusion of the game, which Chelsea win with a Cesc Fabregas goal in the second half to move seven points clear of Arsenal at the top of the league.


Fernandes also said he "did not care about the result", which came despite QPR having been the better team for long parts of a scrappy game.


The defeat was Rangers' first in three games under Chris Ramsey, following a 4-1 thumping of West Brom and a 3-3 draw away at Aston Villa on Monday night.

QPR have been in trouble in recent weeks over a potential £50 million Financial Fair Play fine, after they were alleged to have breached Football League transfer regulations.
