Dave McIntyre/West London Sport QPR QPR chiefs prepared to ‘fight tooth and nail’

Chief executive Philip Beard has reiterated that QPR’s owners will remain committed even if the club drops out of the Premier League.

Saturday’s controversial defeat against fellow strugglers Bolton left Mark Hughes’ team in the bottom three and on course for relegation.

Beard remains upbeat.

The Tony Fernandes-led regime’s attempt to spend big in order to stay in the top flight looks like it may backfire, but Beard believes they will not be deterred should Rangers return to the Championship.

He said: “The thing I think is really important is that we’ve got a group of shareholders who are totally committed.

“My understanding – and I spend a lot of time with them – is that they are 100% committed to this club in the short, medium and long term.”

Last September QPR vice-chairman Amit Bhatia told West London Sport the club was “debt free” following the Fernandes-led takeover.

Despite huge spending on players, Beard agrees with that assessment and insisted: “We have no debts in the club whatsoever. The only debt is with the shareholders.

“Ideally we stay in the Premier League this season and kick on. If things don’t work the way that we want them to, we’ll regroup and fight tooth and nail to come back up.”

Sterling unrest alerts Tottenham who prepare move for Liverpool outcast

Liverpool are facing a fight to keep wonderkid Raheem Sterling as Kenny Dalglish continues to ignore calls for the teenager to be handed a first-team role.

And Tottenham plan to pounce on the uncertainty over Sterling's future with a shock summer move.

The England Under 18 star is widely recognised as the best young prospect at Anfield but the Merseysiders could lose the 17-year-old at the end of the season due to his frustration at the lack of first-team chances.

Sources close to the forward claim the talented teen is struggling to settle in Merseyside and is now said to be considering his future.

The source also added that Liverpool have broken promises made to Sterling over his level of first-team involvement this season.

In 2010, Liverpool paid QPR £500,000, in a deal that could rise to £6million, to sign Sterling as a 15-year-old.

In February 2011, he looked set to become the youngest player in Liverpool's history - at 16 years and 71 days - when he was named in the squad to face Sparta Prague in the Europa League.

However, he is still to make his full debut despite being told he would be given chances.

Sterling is set to feature in tomorrow night's NextGen Series semi-final against Ajax and Sportsmail has learned that a senior Tottenham scout will attend the clash specifically to watch the youngster. Mail
