QPR boss rules out move for Rovers striker Taylor

QPR boss Ian Holloway has ruled out a move for Bristol Rovers striker Matty Taylor.

A number of clubs are reportedly interested in the 26-year-old, who has scored 19 goals for League One side Rovers this season.

Holloway believes Taylor is capable of scoring goals at a higher level but he does not fit the bill for Rangers, who are looking for an experienced target man.

Holloway said: “He’s a very good player who belongs to Bristol Rovers and I shouldn’t talk about anybody else’s players.

“There are a lot of players who step up a level and can score. But it’s about the balance I need – the pace and power to move the ball from back to front sometimes if Idrissa Sylla’s injured.

“Have I got anyone who can do that? I’m not so sure I have, and Matty Taylor isn’t really that sort of player.”
