Todd Kane featured for QPR’s development side in a pre-season friendly at Hampton & Richmond Borough.
West London Sport revealed in May that Kane faced the axe at Rangers with the club looking to bring in a right-back to replace him.
He is now training with the Under-23s and was given a run-out in Saturday’s game at the Beveree Stadium, where the hosts won 4-2.
The line-up was otherwise made up of Under-23 players – including Sean Adarkwa, who spent time on trial with QPR last season and was signed this week after being released by West Ham.
Rangers’ goals were scored by Hamzad Karbo and Charley Kendall.
Kane has been snubbed by Mark Warburton since the manager became aware of an interview in which the former Chelsea man insisted he is a better player than fellow right-back Osman Kakay.
Moses Odubajo will replace Kane in the squad if the ex-Brentford wide-man proves his fitness.
Odubajo, who played under Warburton at Brentford and has since been troubled by injury problems, is a free agent after being released by Sheffield Wednesday and has been training with the R’s.
He is seen as potentially a useful signing, partly because he can also play on the left.
Meanwhile, Wednesday are interested in QPR winger Olamide Shodipo.
