QPR goalkeeper Radek Cerny is the joint recipient of the Championship's Golden Glove for the 2008/09 season.

The Czech stopper has put in some good performances for Rangers this season and has been backed up by an excellent defence.

He spoke to QPR.co.uk following the official announcement but indicated that he would rather have received promotion than the individual award.

Cerny said: 'Keeping clean sheets is a big part of a goalkeeper's job, but I have never really kept count. I prefer to keep count of the number of wins we register, because that's what governs where you finish in the league at the end of the season.

'We didn't win enough matches last season and that is something we need to improve next season.

'However, I really enjoyed my first season with Rangers and I was pleased with my own form.'


The goalkeeper who joined QPR in the summer from Tottenham Hotspur was keen to pay tribute to his fellow players who have defended valiantly at times this season.

'Defending is a team responsibility - from one to eleven, every player plays their part.

'Defensively we are a very strong unit. Each player takes their defensive responsibilities very seriously here and that is the key to keeping things tight at the back.

'We defend as a team and we attack as a team - so this is very much a team award.'


Goalkeeping coach David Rouse said: "He`s been a good performer for us all season

"This season he`s made a number of key saves at important times which is what you`re looking for from a top keeper."


While Chairman of the Football League Lord Mawhinney said: "This gives us the opportunity to recognise the goalkeepers who have made a very special contribution to their team`s efforts this season. Each of these players has had an outstanding season and they fully deserve this recognition."

Cerny shares the award with Sheffield United goalkeeper Paddy Kenny, keeping 19 clean sheets from 47 appearances in all competitions.
