Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is comfortable with QPR supporters abusing him on social media, as long as the fans give the players their 100 per cent backing during a game.
The Dutchman is in the minority of Football League managers who post on social media, with most preferring to stay off it altogether.
Rangers fans have freely criticised the manager in recent weeks and Hasselbaink would only ask them to support the players in blue and white hoops on the pitch.
He said: “The fans are allowed to express themselves. I've got no problem with that. They pay their money – they can say what they want.
“But, you have to understand I'm not getting out of bed thinking we're going to do this to annoy the fans.
“Fans are going to talk and they're allowed to. The only thing I want is when we're playing a match I want them to fully support the players. If it goes wrong, after the match they can be angry with me.
“During the game, I need them to be behind the players. If they give a bad pass or miss a goal, cheer them on.
“That's the only way they'll get over it and do more. They will win. That's the only way. The more the fans are on their back, the harder it is for them.
“If they support them and it goes wrong; have a go at me. Otherwise, really support them and cheer them on. That's the only thing I'm asking.”
