Sir Alex Ferguson could face a charge from the Football Association regarding his recent comments about Queens Park Rangers.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson could face a charge from the Football Association for comments that he made about Queens Park Rangers recently.

Mark Hughes's QPR shipped two goals in injury time on the final day of the season against Manchester City to lose the match 3-2, handing the Premier League title to the Citizens at the expense of United in the process.

Ferguson, disappointed by that outcome, accused the QPR players of quitting at the Etihad Stadium.

"Queens Park Rangers did very well until they found out they were safe, and I think, as Mark Hughes has said, they quit," said Ferguson in the club's Inside United magazine. "That was disappointing. It's hard to digest because we played so well at Sunderland.

"Obviously we knew that QPR were in front, we all thought we had done it, then the Sunderland fans all started cheering and we knew they'd scored again. I said to Mike Phelan a couple of times that if QPR were leading and City equalised, they'd get a big impetus from that, and that's what happened.

"Everyone expected City to win, but they made it difficult for themselves."

The FA are expected to pass their verdict next week.
