QPR CEO Phil Beard denied accusations from Newcastle legend Alan Shearer that Loic Remy moved to the R’s for money.

The 26-year-old Frenchman moved for a club record fee to west London although it appeared that the Magpies had won the race for the striker.

“This move isn’t motivated by money,” Beard told the club’s official website

“Loic has a passion and desire to achieve in his career and similar to (Julio) Cesar, he wanted to be part of our project.

“We know we haven’t achieved our goals so far this season, but he wanted to come in and help us build for the future.

“Tony is remarkable, he never gives up - that is his style - and he is as delighted as anyone that we’ve got this deal done.”
