LONDON: Queens Park Rangers' Malaysian chairman Tony Fernandes conceded on Tuesday that his side's start to the Premier League season has been “nothing short of a disaster”.

Harry Redknapp's side host London rivals Fulham on Saturday and Fernandes has urged supporters to keep the faith ahead of the busy Christmas period.

“Holiday today in Malaysia. Went early xmas shopping. But all I want is three points,” he said.

“Its been nothing short of a disaster. It's not where we are. But boy we put so much effort into this. Good honest effort.

“Keep your spirits up. Laughing smiling and being positive helps. Won't leave any stone unturned to try fix this. tough as it is. Hopefully santa gives us some early presents.”
