Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has the unanimous support of the QPR board after an internal investigation.

The investigation began after Hasselbaink was filmed by undercover Daily Telegraph reporters, with the newspaper alleging the Dutchman requested a fee of £55,000 to work for a fake south-east Asia firm seeking to sell players to the club.

Hasselbaink denied wrongdoing and Rangers, who said they had not been provided with information requested from the newspaper, have backed him.

“Throughout the comprehensive investigation, the club contacted and communicated with all the major parties involved, including the Telegraph, who failed to provide the club with the information requested,” the club said in a statement.

“Despite a number of requests from the club and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s legal team for the information relating to the inferences made on September 28th, including video footage and a full transcript of the discussions that took place, nothing has been forthcoming.

“As a result, and in the absence of any further evidence, the board fully back QPR manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and his explanations relating to these inferences.

“Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink openly admitted he was naive and, as such, has been reminded of his roles and responsibilities as manager of Queens Park Rangers. He remains fully focused on his job as QPR manager, and he does so with the board’s unanimous support.”
