Rangers Legend Backs Dowie

Rangers Legend Backs Dowie

Les Ferdinand has told of his admiration of Iain Dowie as well as Rangers dealings in the transfer market thus far.

Speaking to QPR.co.uk Sir Les told of his delight of the Dowie appointment as First Team Coach:

'I think the acquisition of Iain Dowie was a very good one. He's been there and done it at this level and knows what it take to get a team promoted to the top-tier.' Les told the official website

'He's brought in good quality, adding to an already decent squad, but I think additions are still required.'

Moving forward to the current season, Les assesses the squad for the Championship campaign ahead drawing on aspects of last season:

'There was a lot of inexperience last season, but both Radek and Peter are very good players. I've been fortunate to see quite a bit of them both during my time with Setanta and I think they are both very welcome additions to the squad."

Evidently there has been a recent influx of players at Loftus Road in recent weeks, however the two players Les remained focused on was the early additions of former Tottenham Hotspur and Slavia Prague stopper Radek Cerny, and ex-Newcastle United defender Peter Ramage.

'Peter is a very aggressive player, a whole-hearted lad who will always give one hundred and ten per-cent. He's got a great will-to-win and that will be infectious throughout the side under Dowie."

'Cerny had a very decent season at Spurs and I was very surprised to see him leave. He wanted First Team football and he'll have the chance to compete for that at QPR.'


Les signed for the R`s from Hayes and made 183 appearances for QPR, before moving to aforementioned clubs Newcastle and Spurs for £6,000,000. A well respected professional, Les racked up 17 international caps, scoring 5 goals.
