The news has just broken that QPR have indeed been found guilty of two charges of breaching the FA’s regulations over third-party player ownership (so much for that Monday deadline) but, crucially, the Hoops will not face a points deduction and will be promoted to the Premier League as Championship title winners.
The FA have released the following statement to accompany their decision:
“The Regulatory Commission hearing charges brought by The FA against Queens Park Rangers FC wish to announce that although two of the charges have been found to be proved there will be no points deduction made from Queens Park Rangers FC in this season or the next.”
It’s yet to be confirmed, but it’s more than likely that the FA will now fine QPR heavily for their little discretion – which shouldn’t really a problem considering the club’s board has a combined fortune of several bajillions pounds.
