'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Rob's A Ranger

Mark Hughes has completed his third signing of the summer so far, as England goalkeeper Rob Green has agreed a two year deal at Loftus Road. The 32-year-old will officially join QPR on July 1st when his current contract at West Ham expires.

Numerous keepers have been linked with a move to QPR since the end of last season; however Green`s reluctance to sign a new contract at Upton Park prompted Hughes to swoop for the experienced shot-stopper.

Green, who is currently with the England squad at the European Championships in Poland and Ukraine, has made nearly 500 club appearances throughout his illustrious career and brings with him a wealth of experience both on and off the field.

The Rs gaffer told www.qpr.co.uk: 'It was important we brought another quality keeper into this group. Rob is obviously someone with vast experience at international and Premier League level and his pedigree speaks for itself.`

'He`s got all the characteristics of a top keeper and he`ll be a huge addition to the squad`.


Green, who was previously at Norwich before moving to West Ham, spoke of his delight at joining the Rs: 'I`m delighted to be here. I`m excited about the challenge ahead and hugely encouraged by the direction in which the owners and Mark Hughes are looking to take the club.`

'It`s an exciting period for everybody connected to QPR and I can`t wait to get started`.


The arrival of Green could finally see the departure of current number 1 Paddy Kenny, who has been linked with a move to Leeds United, where he would reunite with former gaffer Neil Warnock, who he played under at Sheffield United, Bury and of course QPR.

This is a great signging, in my opinion, although of course it will be sad to see Kenny go. He has been one of our better keepers of the past couple of decades and I'd like to thank him for his wonderful 25 clean sheets in our promotion year :-D
