‘There will be interest’ in McNamara – QPR boss

QPR boss Michael Beale

Mick Beale has responded to Millwall boss Gary Rowett’s comments that QPR have fallen a long way short of  signing right-back Danny McNamara.

The 23-year-old is in the final year of his contract and Rangers are set to table a significantly improved bid, having seen their initial offers rejected.

Speaking to South London Press, Rowett said the level of bid from Rangers has fallen way short of their valuation and reiterated his desire to keep McNamara at the club.

Speaking to West London Sport, QPR boss Beale said: “Listen, Gary’s said what he said. I didn’t actually see it, you’ve just told me there that he said we haven’t met the valuation.

“He’s their player, so I don’t want to get into that. It would be unfair of me to do that. If Gary did that with one of my players I wouldn’t like it.

“He’s a very, very good full-back. I think everyone knows that and he’s in the last year of his deal so there will be interest from other clubs.

“For some reason we’ve been made public, our interest. I don’t quite know why that is but again he’s Millwall’s player and until he isn’t Millwall’s player, I wouldn’t want to comment.”

Meanwhile, QPR are close to bringing in midfielder Taylor Richards from Brighton.
