CLINT Hill says it would be wrong for QPR players to have a Christmas party while the club sit bottom of the table.
Rangers are yet to record a win after 15 games in the Barclays Premier League this season and the club’s players will not hold a festive celebration this month.
The decision was taken without the influence of their new manager Harry Redknapp, who reportedly ordered his Tottenham stars not to have a party last year.
Hill has told the Chronicle that there was no team meeting held to discuss the matter but the squad all agreed a lavish party would send out the wrong message to the fans.
“We haven't really talked about a Christmas party,” he said.
“The players never set out a date for a party because we don't really think we should be out having a day getting drunk and celebrating Christmas because of the situation we're in.
“There wasn't an actual meeting to say we're not having one, there was just a general feeling that we don't need one and shouldn't have one.”
A big party could still happen, however Hill insists that will have to wait until the end of the season and will only take place if Rangers can claw their way to safety.
That battle for survival continues this weekend as QPR travel north to the DW Stadium to face Wigan and the experienced defender is not expecting an easy ride.
“They are a well-organised side with good players and a good manager,” he said. “He [Roberto Martinez] has changed the shape around quite a lot there but now seems to have settled on a formation.
“The first win would've been nice four or five weekends ago but we just need to get it as soon as possible. It will be one hell of a party if we can achieve what we want to do now.
“We can look it and think 'oh my god how are we going to get out of this?'. Or we can look at it and go 'what a challenge this will be for us to make history and get this club out of the position we're in'. That’s what we have to do.”
