QPR manager Neil Warnock has praised the club's players and fans, despite seeing his side fall to a 1-0 defeat to Champions Newcastle.
Peter Lovenkrands' 71st-minute goal proved to be the difference between the two sides after former Newcastle defender Peter Ramage was sent off at the beginning of the second half.
Warnock admitted that he intends to bring in his own players over the summer as Rangers look to build on their midtable finish next season.
"It was a great atmosphere. Both sets of fans were exceptional and I thought we gave a good account of ourselves and acquitted ourselves very well," Warnock told the club's official website.
"We created a number of chances but just weren't clinical enough. It's something I need to change and I can't wait to bring in my own players.
"For me, the only difference was that they took their one golden opportunity and we missed two or three of ours."
