Chris Ramsey believes his QPR side's heated discussion at half-time at Crystal Palace was a constructive exercise.
Rangers found themselves 3-0 down against the Eagles at the break and frustrations boiled over in the dressing room after a poor first-half performance.
Ramsey, though, believes it shows his squad still care about the club and are itching to escape the situation they are in.
He said: “I wouldn't say there were words said but there was a constructive heated discussion at half-time.
“I think the players realise they didn't want the game to fall into a debacle for the travelling fans. The players do self police quite a lot. We've got an experienced squad here.
“The heated discussion is important. It shows people want to do well for the club. There were no fights or anything like that.
“We've been in a must win situation for a while. The must win are the words you're going to use more and more.
“We are aware we're running out of time and running out of games. We have to give it our best and stay focused.”
