Holloway hits out at Bristol City boss over Freeman comments

QPR boss Ian Holloway has criticised Bristol City counterpart Lee Johnson for his comments about Luke Freeman.

Rangers have had an offer for winger Freeman rejected by City, who want him to sign a new contract. The 24-year-old’s current deal expires at the end of the season.

City manager Johnson recently dropped Freeman, explaining it was because of uncertainty over the player’s future and interest from another club.

Holloway believes there is now no prospect of an agreement over Freeman during this month’s transfer window.

“I think that’s gone. We had a chance to do something and they didn’t want our offer,” Holloway told West London Sport.

“They’ve let it out at the wrong amount, I know what I offered. A Bristol City fan shouted at me in his car when I was down in Bristol. But get your facts right.

“The fact is if you’re letting your players run out of contract and you’ve only got six months to go then that’s your fault, not anybody else’s.

“They’ve said all sorts of things and their manager has made statements about it.

“If you’ve turned down an offer from someone, why do you have to go out and talk about it? It don’t make sense.”
