QPR shamed by Celtic values
AS a window into English football's relentless separation from sanity, the finances of Queens Park Rangers bear withering comparison with those of Glasgow Celtic.
Currently languishing at the bottom of the Premier League with six points from 15 games, QPR have parted with a breath-taking £6.8m in agents' fees alone during the last two transfer windows.
That's roughly half of Celtic's total spend (£13m) on a team that, this week, reached the last 16 of the Champions League.
Prudence isn't often compatible with high ambition, but they're managing some kind of wonderful compromise in the east end of Glasgow.
