QPR boss Ian Holloway has apologised in a video posted on social media after criticising the club’s fans for leaving Tuesday night’s home draw against Brentford early.
Thousands of Rangers supporters missed Holloway’s side hit back from 2-0 down in stoppage time against their local rivals with last-gasp goals from Matt Smith and Luke Freeman snatching them a point.
Loftus Road was half empty when Freeman bundled home his equaliser, prompting Holloway to take a swipe at those who chose to leave early in his post-match interview.
But Holloway’s tone was more concillatory in a video Rangers later posted on their official Twitter site.
“I’m ready to fight and I need you to fight with me, that’s all,” he said. “So I’m sorry. You are a real QPR fan, of course you are.
“But I’m a passionate man, I always have been and I’ve got to get my team passionate. They’re not giving up.
“I don’t want you to. You missed a wonderful moment. It was wonderful. I’ll take that all day long. I can’t wait for the next game against them.
