QPR players will take a knee vs Millwall
“The players have come to me and told me their thoughts and I absolutely agree with them.
“Going forward, this club is so proactive in this area and this is one of the most diverse clubs in the country.
“It’s not about token gestures, it’s about positive action.
“What Les said, we agree 100 per cent with. Using the NHS clap for carers as an example, it was a fantastic cause but it ran its course and now we move on from there.”
Ferdinand previously described the action of taking a knee as “good PR”, and insists it will not bring about change in the game.
“Taking the knee was very powerful but we feel that impact has now been diluted,” Ferdinand explained back in September.
“I work for one of the most diverse football clubs in this country. A lot of people are being fooled out there.
“The taking of the knee has reached a point of good PR but little more than that. The message has been lost. It is now not dissimilar to a fancy hashtag or a nice pin badge.
“What are our plans with this? Will people be happy for players to take the knee for the next ten years but see no actual progress made?
“Taking the knee will not bring about change in the game – actions will.”
