QPR chairman Tony Fernandes has told fans not to despair about their current league position and insists those in charge at Loftus Road care about the future of the club.
A 2-1 defeat at Liverpool on Saturday leaves Rangers seven points from Premier League safety with just three games remaining and the west London side now look like falling out of the division for the second time in three years.
Chris Ramsey's side could be relegated when they travel to face Manchester City on Saturday and face an uncertain financial future as the club are set to be hit with a fine for falling foul of the Football League's Financial Fair Play rules.
But Fernandes, who has often used social media to air his views since taking over at QPR, tweeted on Monday that fans should not worry about the future of the club and insisted the club hierarchy knows how to take the Rs forward.
"QPR Fans. Don't despair. Lots to look forward to. You have shareholders who care. Not perfect. Made mistakes. But we care," he wrote.
"We have learnt a lot about players, managers, agents. Onwards and upwards. 3 out of 4 seasons in the Premier League.
"It's not over till it's over. Got three games left. Need to play for all the game. Not just 85 mins and who knows.
"See you at City. That's it for the moment. Stay positive. Hard but that's all we got. You he (sic) shareholders who are decent and care."
Fernandes also hit out at the media and claimed fans will be pleased by news set to be released on Tuesday.
"Some announcements on Tuesday which will please you," he tweeted.
"There is little debt by the way. All shareholders loan. Debt is related to new stadium. Tired of journalists making stuff up.
"We have good people in the club now. Will be choosing a new CEO in the next few weeks. While the table may not look future still good (sic)."
