QPR Official Site - R'S TO TOUR ITALY

Posted on: Mon 21 Jun 2010

The R's First Team squad will travel to Italy in July for two pre-season friendly fixtures.

Neil Warnock's side will depart for Milano Marittima in the province of Ravenna on Tuesday 20th July.

During their seven day stay on Italian soil, Rangers will lock horns with Equipe Romagna and Lega Pro Prima Divisione side Ravenna Calcio.

Warnock's men will play Equipe Romagna at lo Stadio dei Pini on Wednesday 21st July (9.00pm kick off), before locking horns with local side Ravenna on Sunday 25th July (9.00pm kick off) at Stadio Bruno Benelli.

Speaking exclusively to www.qpr.co.uk, Warnock expressed his delight at the tour, commenting: "It'll be a key part of our pre-season preparations.

"The facilities at the training camp are excellent and the weather at that time of year should be great for the lads to train in."

Warnock added: "It will be a great chance for the new lads to settle in and get to know their new team-mates in a different environment."vQPR


Neil Warnock has revealed he is continuing to make enquiries in the transfer market, as the countdown to the 2010/11 npower Championship gathers pace.

The R's boss has already swooped for Jamie Mackie, Leon Clarke and Paddy Kenny over recent weeks and with one or two more irons in the fire, Warnock is confident of adding to his squad again soon.

"I've made enquiries about a lot of players," he told www.qpr.co.uk.

"I'd like to get at least another couple in, maybe even three or

[b]"We need to balance the books as well though.

"There'll be players who leave and players who sign - that's the nature of the business we're in.

"I think we need a squad of 25, but if we can get a squad of 22 without loaning players, we'll be in good shape."

Warnock added: "I don't think QPR fans will have too many complaints once I've got my squad together.

"They showed at the end of last season that they trust me.

"I think the important thing is getting the spirit right.

"We need to get the whole Club pulling together - the players, the staff and the fans.

"It's important that we do well.

"I've not got long left. I want to be on my tractor in three years or so, so it's very important that we push on next season." QPR

Shaun Derry's QPR switch in doubt

QPR were last night attempting to rescue the deal that brings Shaun Derry to the club after Ipswich Town made it plain they intend to snatch the player from under Rangers' noses.

The Crystal Palace midfelder has long been on the Rs radar as a replacement for Gavin Mahon in the gap between defence and midfield – but the Tractor Boys are ready to use all means available to get Derry for themselves.

It’s understood Ipswich gave notice to Rangers of their intentions to make sure agents did not start a bidding war over wages, but Rs chairman Gianni Paladini has moved quickly to keep Derry on course for Loftus Road next season.

An insider said: “Boss Neil Warnock has set his heart on getting a player he knows well from his time at Crystal Palace – and Rangers are ready to pull out the stops to complete the Derry signing.”

Derry was alerted to Ipswich’s interest because Warnock refuses to guarantee the 32-year-old a permanent berth. The manager intends to chop and change his formation next season and dispense with a holding midfielder from time to time. Ealing Gazette
