QPR appoint Harris as head physio

QPR: Loftus Road

QPR have appointed Aaron Harris as the club’s new head physiotherapist.

Harris joins Rangers after spending 11 years as head academy physiotherapist at Tottenham.

Rangers’ club doctor, Imtiaz Ahmad, has been given the role of head of medical services, replacing Matt May, who has joined Cardiff City.

Dr Ahmad – also formerly of Tottenham – will take an overseeing role as part of a new set-up.

The previous set-up was criticised by Tony Fernandes on the Open All R’s podcast in April, during which he bemoaned the club’s frequent injury problems.

Harris joins the former Tottenham contingent at Loftus Road, which includes director of football Les Ferdinand and technical director Chris Ramsey and has previously included the likes of academy bosses Richard Allen and Perry Suckling.

“Aaron is a highly qualified individual who was really well respected at Tottenham and his arrival is a big plus for us,” Ferdinand told QPR’s website.
