Queens Park Rangers defender Clint Hill insists the whole of the dressing room is behind manager Mark Hughes despite their poor start to the season.

The Hoops currently sit bottom of the Barclays Premier League table, having taken just three points from their eight matches following last Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Everton.

Much was expected of Rangers before the start of the season, after the board spent almost £200million on new players in the summer, in an attempt to avoid a repeat of last term, when they narrowly escaped relegation on the final day.

Their poor form has understandably seen Hughes come under huge pressure, with sports betting markets now placing Rangers among the favourites for the drop.

Despite the constant reassurances of ambitious chairman Tony Fernandes, who once again came out in support of him on Sunday, Hughes continues to be linked with sack.

One of the reasons for Fernandes standing by is manager is the immensely high regard the former Manchester City boss is thought to be held in within the Loftus Road dressing room.

Hill is the latest in a long line of players to come out in support of the under fire coach and insists that everyone at the club is committed to helping Hughes guide the team away from the relegation zone.

“Everybody on the inside is pulling in the same direction and trying to get the result we need,” he said. “The gaffer’s confident he can turn things around – he wouldn’t be here if he wasn’t. He’s still got the full support of all the boys. We’re fully behind him and the staff.”

“If you look at the Tottenham manager three or four weeks ago, everyone was saying he was a bad manager. All of a sudden he gets a few results and nothing is said.”
