QPR boss eyeing new signings

Ian Holloway says he is determined to revamp QPR’s squad following their disappointing season.

Rangers narrowly avoided relegation, losing 18 of their 30 matches since Holloway was brought in to replace the sacked Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.

“It’s all about the people we bring. I’ve got to get them right,” Holloway told West London Sport.

“I’m old enough to know that it’s not about today. It’s all about pre-season, it’s about getting the scouting network to find us some new different faces.

“If I can move some things in and out it’ll be a joy to be able to try to get better than we have been.”

Rangers ended the campaign with a 4-0 defeat at Norwich, where Holloway gave a debut to Josh Bowler by bringing the teenager on as a second-half substitute.

The visitors were soundly beaten, with Wes Hoolahan scoring two of Norwich’s goals in a one-sided match.

“I don’t think my lads didn’t try, but we were nowhere near,” Holloway said.

“We had one or two efforts, but that was one game too much for the squad, with the injuries we had.

“It just proved a huge learning curve for the people we have got in there and it was probably too much for them on the day.”
