Ramsey includes youngsters in QPR training

Chris Ramsey included two youngsters in his first training session since being placed in caretaker charge at QPR.

Ramsey, assisted by Kevin Bond, is preparing the squad for Saturday’s game against Southampton ahead of Rangers’ planned appointment of Tim Sherwood as manager.

Full-back Darnell Furlong – son of former QPR striker Paul – and midfielder Brandon Comley joined the first team for the session. Both players signed professional contracts last year.

Furlong has impressed in recent months, while Comley is highly rated by former Tottenham coach Ramsey, who was given an overseeing role at Loftus Road after Les Ferdinand was installed as head of football operations in October.

Other development-squad players were called upon for the second part of Thursday’s training session – an eleven-a-side practice game in which the Under-21s played against the first team.

Sherwood, who worked with Ramsey and Ferdinand at Spurs, was lined up prior to Harry Redknapp’s departure and is expected to be confirmed as R’s boss next week.
