Holloway credited with Washington’s QPR turnaround

Northern Ireland boss Michael O’Neill believes Ian Holloway has helped turn Conor Washington’s QPR career around.

The Northern Ireland international, 24, has been in excellent form since Holloway replaced Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink as Rangers manager.

And the Belfast Telegraph reports that O’Neill believes the change of manager at Loftus Road has enabled Washington to rediscover his confidence.

“Conor has come in and done well, he’s been patient and a new manager has probably helped him,” said O’Neill.

“He looks back to being the player he was when we first got him, his hunger is there, he’s strong, fit and powerful and he’s getting regular football.”
