LOIC REMY has scored his way into the hearts of QPR fans since his arrival from Marseille in January.
Last weekend the Frenchman’s stunning strike at Loftus Road seemed to have given the R’s a valuable three points against relegation rivals Wigan, only for the Latics to score a heart-breaking late leveller for a share of the spoils.
While the 26 year-old is rightly pleased with his edge-of-the-box finish, he has been left as frustrated as the Rangers fans by the position the club finds itself in.
“It was a striker’s goal, an instinctive one,” he says of his fifth in seven starts for the R’s. “There was personal satisfaction with that goal but it was a collective effort to score it.
“We had plenty of chances to win, it was tough and that game was crucial. We really wanted the three points.
“It’s the small things that let us down and it’s those things that make the difference. But there is hope and we have to take things game by game.
QPR are currently seven points adrift of safety with six games remaining but Remy has not given up hope of turning things around in the closing weeks of the season.
“I’m always ambitious and I believe we can still stay up," he adds.
“Even if we only were to have a small chance then we have to keep believing and holding on until the end, it’s as simple as that.”
Rangers travel to Goodison Park on Saturday to take on an Everton side occupying sixth spot in the table. Remy knows it will be a difficult test.
“This will be a tough match,” he added, “especially seeing that we will be playing away from home.
“Right now there is everything to play for in the league so we need to give it our all on the pitch.
“We need the fighting spirit right up until the last minute because you never know when you will get your breakthrough.”
