QPR manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink says he is “very happy” with the squad at his disposal, insisting the cut in budget is not a reason for the club’s inconsistent form this season.

Pressure has intensified on Hasselbaink after last Friday’s 2-0 defeat to local rivals Brentford, leaving the Rs 13th in the Championship, but the Dutchman says he accepts the criticism that is being handed his way and understands the expectation that comes with this job.

He told the Times: “That is football. It is what it is. We all know that the budget has gone down and all that and we are working with younger players.

“I’m very happy with the squad I have and the players that are here. I don’t want to talk about the budget being cut.

“I want to concentrate on the players I have and that we have the right team and we are together.

“We all want to be pushing for the play-offs - of course we do.

“But at the moment it is important we get back on track first and foremost, and then hopefully we can string a few results together.”
