Luongo unlucky to be dropped, says Holloway

QPR: Massimo Luongo

Ian Holloway says Massimo Luongo can count himself unfortunate to have been left out of the QPR side.

Luongo, who recently signed a new contract, was outstanding for Rangers earlier in the season but a dip in form led to him being omitted for the wins against Birmingham and Wigan.

“Massimo’s unlucky I’ve left him out, but he’s still as happy as everybody else because we’re winning games,” said Holloway.

The R’s boss added: “I want to congratulate the players I haven’t picked. When I do put them on they absolutely do a hell of a stint for us.

“They take it (not being selected) in the right way and for me they’re earning the right to wear that badge.

“With the subs we’ve got, and the people we’re not picking, I think we’re stronger than we were.”
