Hall takes part in QPR training session

Grant Hall took part in some of QPR’s first training session since the players’ return for the start of pre-season.

The squad, minus Massimo Luongo, who is at the World Cup with Australia, returned to Rangers’ Harlington training ground on Monday for routine physical assessments.

The first proper training took place on Tuesday morning and Hall was involved for part of the session.

Hall missed most of last season because of a persistent knee problem and was forced to undergo surgery.

Rangers boss Steve McClaren recently told West London Sport he was optimistic that Hall would be ready for the start of pre-season training.

Meanwhile, QPR are set to sell goalkeeper Alex Smithies to Cardiff City and have confirmed the departure of out-of-contract defender Jack Robinson.

West London Sport revealed before the end of last season that neither Robinson nor Nedum Onuoha would sign new deals at Loftus Road.
