QPR LEGEND Rodney Marsh believes Rangers fans need to show a sense of realism and patience over the coming weeks.
Mark Hughes's men have collected just two points from their opening seven Barclays Premier League fixtures, but Marsh believes results will come.
Speaking exclusively to London Call-In
last night, Marsh said: "I am one-hundred per-cent convinced QPR will climb the table in the coming weeks and I am one-hundred per-cent convinced the club won't be relegated.
"The fans need to be patient.
"The media, who mostly know next to nothing by the way, try to create such a load of nonsense.
"QPR have new owners, new directors, new players, a new management team and people are talking about replacing the manager after seven games - that, to me, borders on insanity.
"I'm not telling Tony Fernandes how to run this football club by the way, but the results will come and I'm confident this new-look team will begin to gel very soon."
Marsh added: "I look at Taarabt, Faurlin - who is a lovely player - and Granero, for example, and I see good quality.
"But the important thing is the defensive unit doing well and I am sure Mark will agree one-hundred per-cent with me on that.
"There have been a lot of injuries in that department. It's not an excuse, it's a reason.
"When you're given a reason for failure, you have to look at the other side of the coin. And in this instance, Rangers have suffered from a change in personnel and a change in system.
"A solid central defensive partnership is so important and hopefully Mark will get that right once everyone returns to full fitness."
