'City fans spat at me' - Langley
Langley's claim as Bluebirds lose

Mark Bloom, South Wales Echo

Former Cardiff City midfielder Richard Langley was left shocked after allegedly being spat at by Bluebirds fans as his Queens Park Rangers team claimed a 1-0 win at Loftus Road last night.
City took around 1,000 supporters with them to west London and Langley, who never won over the Ninian Park followers in his time in South Wales, claimed a section of them spat at him as he was collecting the ball from the sidelines.
'I'm shocked and disappointed that I was spat at by some of the Cardiff fans,' said Langley, who returned to Rangers last summer when City decided he did not fit in to their plans.
'I don't deserve that kind of treatment. I played for Cardiff for two seasons and gave my best and worked hard. 'I didn't choose to leave Cardiff - in fact I enjoyed my time there. I still have a lot of good Welsh friends.
'But to be spat at when I was getting the ball underneath the Cardiff fans was a poor act. To be honest I didn't know what to expect.'QPR's match-winning goal came just two minutes after the break as striker Marc Nygaard headed home. And Langley's spitting claims only marred further an already disappointing night for Dave Jones' side, who are now 11th in the Championship table http://icwales.icnetw

Holloway: Langley must improve

Ian Holloway, Queens Park Rangers' outspoken manager, had a pop at former Cardiff City midfield player Richard Langley last night, saying: 'Give me more consistency.'
Langley played in the centre of midfield for QPR against the Bluebirds and was among the most influential players.
He rejoined QPR from Cardiff this season and Holloway said: 'Richard showed me what he can do, against his former team.
'But he needs to do that on a regular basis. He has not been anywhere near achieving that so far.'
