Mark Warburton says he has no issue with players arguing following reports of a dispute in the Queens Park Rangers dressing room.
A revealing interview with TalkSPORT saw Charlie Austin open up on a behind-the-scenes argument with Geoff Cameron following the club’s 2-1 defeat against Birmingham City.
While disputes can often be a sign of unrest at a football club the QPR boss has discussed the situation and said that he’d be more concerned if his players didn’t react after throwing away a 1-0 lead.
As quoted by West London Sport, Warburton said: “I don’t mind it all.
“It shows two senior professionals who have played many games in the Premier League and it shows how much it means to them.
“Of course there is a point that you don’t let them go beyond, but with senior pros often as a manager and the coaches we will delay our entry into the room for five minutes to let them get their comments out. It’s important it means a lot.
“In that game we were eight minutes out from picking up a good three points and keep on building momentum.
“If there is no reaction then you have more of a problem.”

Arguments are part and parcel of life in professional football.
While it’s obviously important that the situation is managed effectively, it’s only natural that highly-competitive players will react strongly as they look to secure the best results possible.
It sounds like this instance wasn’t an issue and QPR will only benefit from having leaders such as Austin and Cameron in their ranks.
