QPR will have to hope Angel Rangel has enough left in the engine

Queens Park Rangers are close to signing free agent Angel Rangel according to West London Sport.

What’s the story?

Rangel has been at Swansea City for 11 years, amassing well over 300 league appearances for the Welsh club as they rose from League One to the Premier League.

However, Swansea decided not to renew the 35-year-old’s contract at the end of last season and the right-back has been a free agent since then.

Now according to the latest report, Steve McClaren is looking to sign the experienced defender as cover while Darnell Furlong is out injured.

Unspectacular but solid addition

Rangel can offer QPR serious experience having spent seven years in the Premier League and he also has knowledge of playing in the English football league.

However, at 35 and having only made four league appearances last season, he might not have much left in him.

If Rangel is just a quick fix to replace Furlong while he is out of action, there could be worse options and McClaren will be hoping he can still do a job at a high level despite the Spaniard entering the final days of his career.
