MARK Hughes has hit back at criticism from Mohamed Al Fayed ahead of QPR's clash with Fulham.
The Craven Cottage chairman branded the Welshman a 'flop' after he walked out on the Whites after just a year in charge last summer, questioning the club's ambition.
But Hughes insists he did an 'outstanding' job in SW6 to lead them to eighth in the Premier League table.
He said: "There's always a different viewpoint when you leave a club and it seems to be quite difficult to leave Fulham and remain on good terms.
"That's a shame because I enjoyed my time there, it's a great club with some fantastic people.
"I'd back my record at Fulham against anybody else's. Eighth in the Premier League for Fulham was an outstanding job, I don't consider that to be a lack of success.
"But my focus is now QPR and the game at the weekend. Fulham have come into my thinking because that's the team we are up against but once the game's out of the way I'll focus on the next one."
