Losing QPR captaincy does not trouble Park

Ji-sung Park says he is untroubled by not being given the captain’s armband for QPR’s FA Cup game against West Brom.

Park, named club captain following his summer move from Manchester United, returned to the Rangers starting line-up for Saturday’s 1-1 draw following a knee problem.

But Clint Hill, who has played a key role since manager Harry Redknapp’s appointment, was chosen as skipper.

“It doesn’t matter. It’s the manager’s decision and we have to follow that,” said Park.

“I respect his decision and don’t really care about that. I’m an experienced player in the squad, so I can still help the team with or without the armband.”

Kieron Dyer’s injury-time equaliser kept Rangers in the cup and they will be at home to Sheffield Wednesday or MK Dons if they win their third-round replay at Albion.

“It was important not to lose the game, to keep up the momentum after the win against Chelsea,” Park added.

“We were losing but chased the draw so it’s good for the team’s mood going into the next game.”
