MARK Hughes insists keeping QPR in the Premier League is one of the biggest achievements of his managerial career.
Rangers beat the drop by the skin of their teeth despite a dramatic final-day defeat at Manchester City.
The hosts scored twice in stoppage-time to come from behind and clinch the Premier League title with a 3-2 vicotry, but the R's survived after Bolton could only draw at Stoke.
And former Wales, Blackburn and Manchester City boss Hughes, who took over at Loftus Road in January, says this is one of the biggest feats.
He said: “It's a huge achievement because no one has any idea of what I walked into when I started the job.
“It was a club that didn't have things in place that they need to, like the support structures to enable you to be consistently good, week in, week out.
“To bring the group together, galvanise them to be able to produce what they have in unbelievable circumstances is a great credit to everyone at Queens Park Rangers.”
