Derby County supporters flocked to social media on Monday night, to pay tribute to both the club’s players and staff, despite the club’s relegation to the first division.
The rams are back in business a short time ago.
With their status in the second tier of English football hanging by a thread, Wayne Rooney and his teammates. He made the trip to Loftus Road, desperately waiting for all three points at a meeting with Queens Park Rangers.
However, a late goal by Luke Amos eventually led to a 1-0 derby loss.

Queens Park Rangers, in turn, put the club’s push for a place in the playoffs back on the right track.
I couldn’t be more proud
In Derby, as noted above, reality will now begin to stabilize to a large extent …
Given the club’s massive 21-point deduction in the Premier League earlier in the campaign, the Rams witnessed their valiant efforts to fend off what for so long seemed inevitable in the Premier League.
The East Midlands side will therefore have to trade their trade in the third tier of English football for the 2022/23 campaign.
The results this afternoon mean we are going to be short on our hurdles this season.

But, as noted above, despite what is set to be a completely dark day in the club’s history, many of this evening’s derby persuasion were keen to express their gratitude to club staff and players alike.
Taking to Twitter by the numbers, the Rams’ faithfuls applauded everyone’s season-long survival effort at Pride Park, with some reactions shown below:
Proud as fuck! It took 43 games for us to lose the score, that was always what UEFA wanted, but the players should hold their heads high after an amazing season! We will be back ❤️

Positive despite disappointment. We must hope to have a team at all next season and this process is underway. Despite everything, there is no doubt that this was one of my favorite seasons in recent memory. Funny how things go!
