I grew up watching McDonald at the heart of defence and was delighted when he came back to assist Waddock. Devestated by this news. In my eyes he is a QPR legend, plain and simple.

I was saddened & shocked to hear of Macca's sudden passing today - with him passes a true QPR legend & hero - a man who was the epitome of "captain" & our Club. RIP Alan McDonald
