QPR boss responds to transfer rumour and ponders change in goal

QPR boss Mark Warburton has denied reports he is eyeing a move for Heinz Lindner.

Warburton has told West London Sport he is not interested in the Austrian goalkeeper – despite reports claiming he had been invited for a trial with the R’s.

Lindner, 29, is a free agent after leaving Zurich Grasshoppers when his contract expired during the summer. He previously made more than 200 appearances for Austria Vienna and has also played 22 times for his country.

“I’m happy with the keepers I’ve got,” said Warburton, who currently has Joe Lumley and summer signings Liam Kelly and Dillon Barnes to choose from.

Warburton has so far kept faith with Lumley but rates Scottish stopper Kelly highly and it could be just a matter of time before a change is made in goal.

It could happen in today’s London derby against Millwall at The Den, where in-form Rangers will be looking for their fourth consecutive league win.

“It is not just about being physical at Millwall, they have got very good footballers as well,” Warburton told QPR’s website.

“We have to respect that and deal with whatever they give us. We have to stand up to it and play our game as well.”
