Clinton Morrison has said that Ian Holloway should keep the criticism of his players private after he launched a scathing attack of his team.

QPR fell to a 2-0 defeat against high-flying Bristol City, and speaking on Football on 5, Clinton Morrison said the pressure appears to be getting to him.

Asked whether he got that impression that Ollie needed more from his players, Morrison said: “Yeah I did, it was a sly dig (about the players).

"It’s not going well for him at the moment so he needs his players to be behind him, but if you’re going to come out and make comments like that, the players aren’t going to be happy.

"I think things like that should maybe be kept inhouse. He needs the fans onside, he’s even been arguing with them recently."
