Jones died in a car accident on Saturday morning
QPR boss John Gregory has described the death of Ray Jones as a "tragic loss."

The Loftus Road club postponed their game against Burnley on Saturday following the news that the 18-year-old had died in a car accident.

Gregory told the club's website: "Ray was a beautiful boy and was a fantastic person with a big big heart.

"He had his best footballing years in front of him. He was already a hero amongst QPR fans and had the potential to go on and become a legend."

Gregory added: "He really did have the footballing world at his feet and the fact he can't go on and fulfil the undoubted potential he had is a tragedy in itself.

"Ray was one of the most popular figures in the dressing room. No-one ever had a bad word to say about him and for me that says everything you need to know about Ray Jones, that person and the footballer.

"It's a tragic loss and our sympathies and condolences go out to his family and friends at this awful time."
