McClaren: QPR star can play in Premier League

Steve McClaren hailed QPR star Luke Freeman as good enough for the Premier League after the 1-0 victory over Leeds.

Freeman scored the winner and was outstanding throughout at Loftus Road, where Rangers ended a seven-match losing run.

“When you’re looking for leadership and looking for people to have courage and take the ball, he’s got all that,” Rangers boss McClaren said.

“He’s someone who can play at the top of the Championship, could play in that Leeds team and could play in the Premier League, so we’re delighted to have him here.”

The win took QPR up to 17th in the Championship table, 12 points clear of the relegation zone.
