QPR launched an internal investigation into the claims but have now ended that due to a lack of concrete information.

The club released a statement which said, “The club contacted and communicated with all the major parties involved, including The Telegraph, who failed to provide the club with the information previously requested.

“Despite a number of requests from both the club and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s legal team for the information relating to the inferences made on September 28, including video footage and a full transcript of the discussions that took place, nothing has been forthcoming.

“As a result, and in the absence of any further evidence, the board fully back Jimmy and his explanations relating to these inferences.”
