Hasselbaink says he ‘can’t wait’ to pick Robinson for QPR


Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has told QPR’s website he “can’t wait” to see Jack Robinson play for the club.

Robinson, 22, recently returned to action for Rangers’ development side following the long-term knee injury he suffered last March while on loan at Huddersfield.

The left-back is yet to make a first-team appearance for the R’s, having been loaned to Huddersfield immediately after being signed from Liverpool in the summer of 2014.

Rangers manager Hasselbaink said: “Jack is getting closer and closer. We can’t wait until he is fully fit and able to show us and the fans what he’s got. We have got high hopes for him.”

Robinson is expected to feature in a friendly against Ebbsfleet United next week as part of his comeback.

Meanwhile, Conor Washington has been passed fit for Saturday’s game at Championship strugglers Bolton, but Alejandro Faurlin is still sidelined.
