Chris Ramsey backed to stay with Queens Park Rangers

Winger Matt Phillips feels Queens Park Rangers should stick with manager Chris Ramsey even if they drop into the Championship.

The Hoops are in serious trouble at the wrong end of the table and sit 19th in the Premier League standings with 27 points from 34 games played.

They are four points drift of safety and face a battle over the last four matches to try to retain their top-flight status.

It seems a tall order given the way their campaign has gone to date and they travel to Anfield to take on Liverpool on Saturday, with the R’s priced at 9.00 to come away with all three points and the Reds on offer at 1.36.

But Hull City showed on Monday night that the Merseysiders could be there for the taking as it appears that their season is now over, with little to play for but pride.

Whatever happens at Anfield, it is still going to be tough for the Loftus road club to beat the drop, with owner Tony Fernandes telling Ramsey that it was “his job to lose” when he replaced Harry Redknapp in the Rangers’ hot-seat.

Whether or not relegation would see the boss axed only time will tell, but Phillips feels they would be wise to stick with a man who, he feels, has done little wrong since he stepped into the breach.

“We definitely want him to stay whatever happens,” he told Standard Sport. “You can see in the performances that the players are going out and playing for the club, playing for the shirt and playing for him. Everyone wants to be involved and play.”
