QPR chairman Tony Fernandes has said he will leave the club if he is unable to revive their fortunes.

Rangers are rooted to the foot of the Premier League table, five points adrift of safety, and bowed out of the FA Cup on Saturday following a 4-2 home defeat to League One side MK Dons.

Fernandes, who took over in August 2011 following their promotion to the top flight, remains determined to get QPR back on track, but is prepared to step down if he cannot.

The Malaysian businessman, who brought in Harry Redknapp as manager in November in place of Mark Hughes, said on his Twitter account on Sunday: "Attendance was great. Thanks to fans Everything worked. We will fix It. I'm still optimistic.

"Many fans attacking me. Doing our best. As I said we won't stop trying. As I have said many times I take all responsibility and will face the music.

"Always spirit up. If can't fix it I will be first to go."

Gordon was a member of Chelsea's youth team and also featured for the club's reserves, but he has decided to move on for pastures new.

A number of clubs are thought to have expressed an interest in Gordon, but Palace have moved quickly to bring in the player

Versatile performer Gordon, who can play at right-back, centre-back and midfield, is thought to have agreed a one-year professional deal at Selhurst Park.

The 18-year-old has represented England at schoolboy and Under 17 level and Palace have high hopes that he could establish himself at Selhurst Park.
