Former QPR favourite Nigel Quashie is backing his old club to bounce back from its recent off-field problems.
The reported dressing room bust up between Jim Magilton and Akos Buzsaky has attracted widespread interest but the Scottish international believes it has been blown out of proportion.
Quashie said: "I think a lot more has been made of it than what it actually is. At the end of the day,what goes on in the dressing room goes on in the dressing room, and that should be sorted out there.
"It's nothing strange; it is just something that happens in football. There is often something in a season which gets picked up and it's a little bit unfortunate and you get certain players going in certain directions."

In December 1995 Quashie was given his QPR debut, by then manager Ray Wilkins, at the age of 17 against Manchester United at Old Trafford and went on to make 63 appearances for the R's before his �2.5 million move to Nottingham Forest in 1998.
He is fondly remembered by Rangers fans for his stunning volley against local rivals Chelsea in the 1996 FA Cup defeat, a goal that the 31-year-old midfielder is more than happy to watch again.

He said: "I think it was in black and white, it was a long time ago. I think you could get that on betamax!
"QPR is a club that I love dearly, they are my club and I still go and watch them when I can. Under the circumstances at the time when I left, they needed the money when I needed to go and I'm really grateful to them for giving me the opportunity.
"With football you have to enjoy it because it can change so quickly. I'm sure things will pan out for QPR, like it does for every football club - they always find a little solution to get the club stable.
