QPR boss: Johansen fit for Millwall game

QPR boss Mark Warburton says Stefan Johansen is fit to play in Saturday’s game against Millwall.

The Norwegian midfielder, hugely impressive on loan with the R’s last season, recently completed a permanent move from Fulham.

He did not feature in Saturday’s friendly against Leicester.

But Warburton has no concerns about Johansen’s lack of action during pre-season.

Warburton said: “He’s in a good place. He’s naturally fit anyway and he was working at Fulham while the transfer talks were going on.

“When Stef came in last year he was very impressive for many reasons and one of those was his fitness.

“In terms of his fitness and robustness he’s showing exactly the same again. Stef will be in the squad.”

Rangers announced on Thursday that Johansen has been made club captain.

“It was a tight decision, to be honest,” Warburton revealed.

“We’re fortunate to have players like Stefan, Lee Wallace, Charlie Austin and a great mentor in Albert Adomah. All of them are very important to us.”
