ANTON Ferdinand has spoken of his gratitude for the support he received from the QPR fans on his recent outing against Chelsea at Loftus Road.
Ferdinand played through the pain barrier in the final stages of the game against the Blues and missed Monday night’s fixture with West Ham owing to a hamstring problem.
Speaking for the first time since the west London derby, Ferdinand told www.qpr.co.uk: “The fans were great and I want to thank them from the bottom of my heart.
“They gave me fantastic support and I couldn’t have got through the day without them. They kept me going for the full 90 minutes.
“It has been a difficult period for me but the fans have been special, they have been very good to me.
“The club on the whole, the lads and all the fans have given me incredible support. The backing I’ve been given is something I will never forget.
“I just want to concentrate on football now and look forward to climbing up that table.”
Rangers currently occupy bottom spot in the Premier League despite producing excellent performances, most notably against Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham.
And Ferdinand believes those displays show Rangers have what’s needed in the dressing room to move up the table in the coming weeks and months.
“We have got an impressive squad and I’m sure if we keep playing as we have been in recent weeks, we will turn things around,” added the 27 year-old.
“It has to turn at some point and let’s hope it’s sooner rather than later.”
