Some QPR fans on Twitter appear to be split over the negative reception received by Matt Phillips in the 2-0 defeat to West Brom at the weekend.
The forward – who played for the R’s from 2013-2016 – was roundly booed by the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium faithful upon his return to that corner of London.
Phillips, 28, scored 14 goals and recorded 15 assists in 94 appearances for the Londoners during his spell at the club, but appeared to put his finger to his lips and also cupped his ears when celebrating in front of them at the Hawthorns last term – a move which seems to still be on the minds of a few fans below.
On the other hand, some have defended the former Blackpool forward, and have said that the discontent he received was unfair – it definitely seems to be an incident which has split a section of the fanbase on Twitter.
Let’s take a look at some of the reaction…
He was good for us Sean but he deserves it from ? ‘ing us last season.

got a decent reception at Hawthorns last season and then decided to run to us cupping his ear after they scored so fully deserves the stick

Not half as embarrassing as the 90 occasions he put on a QPR shirt. Fully deserved boos.

Matt Phillips was great for us, never understood the boos when we’ve played recently.
