Martin Jol and Mark Hughes both downplayed talk of an altercation after Fulham secured victory from a tense west London derby at QPR.

The clubs' once-amicable relationship is far more fraught nowadays due in no small part to Bobby Zamora's defection to join former Cottagers manager Hughes at Loftus Road. Having seen 10-man Rangers lose 1-0 to Pavel Pogrebnyak's early goal, there appeared to be an issue in the post-match handshake between Jol and his QPR counterpart.

Asked what happened on the touchline, Hughes said: "I offered my hand and he shook it readily. I congratulated him on a good performance by his team. They won the game and I don't have a problem with that. I took exception because I thought he was going to tap me on the head, which I deemed to be slightly patronising so I brushed his arm away. That is all it was. No big deal."
