Queens Park Rangers are back in the Premier League after a season in the Championship. Harry Redknapp’s squad for this season will be based on old Premier League renegades such as Clint Hill, Shaun Wright-Phillips and of course, Joey Barton. An atmosphere in which former Red Devils star Rio Ferdinand should feel comfortable in.
By adding former England coach Glen Hoddle to their managerial team, QPR show that rigor and experience will be the key words of this season. To prove the Rangers can bite and not only bark, a first win against the Tigers would look great.
