QPR’s FA Cup exit led to dressing room row

Queens Park Rangers’ FA Cup defeat at the hands of League One side MK Dons on Saturday led to a dressing room row between the players of the beaten Premier League side, the Daily Mail has reported.

Rangers lost 4-2 at home to Karl Robinson’s Dons, at one point trailing the lower league side 4-0 despite the presence of a number of international players in the home side’s starting XI. Manager Harry Redknapp included the likes of England goalkeeper Robert Green, South Korea international Park Ji-Sung and former Real Madrid midfielder Esteban Granero in the side.

Redknapp had previously admitted that a split between the players had developed, with the higher-paid players on one side and the longer-serving players on another, with the two camps almost coming to blows shortly after the final whistle on Saturday, the Mail claims.

Two unnamed players were at the heart of the row, the newspaper continued, with other members of the squad taking sides. Despite the arguments the incident never turned physical and Redknapp was not in the dressing room at the time.

QPR’s FA Cup exit only piled on the misery of the season so far for the Loftus Road club, who remain bottom of the Premier League, four points back on second-bottom Wigan Athletic and five adrift of safety.
