Warburton indicates QPR will look to keep Carroll

Mark Warburton has indicated that QPR will look to keep Tom Carroll at the club.

Carroll, 28, was signed on a one-year deal last summer and was in good form before being sidelined by a knee injury in January.

He recently returned to the squad and was an unused substitute for Saturday’s win at Stoke.

His representatives have since opened discussions with Rangers director of football Les Ferdinand.

“The stats tell you Tom was doing very, very well for us,” manager Warburton said.

“He had a consistent run of games and level of performance, so I’m sure chats are ongoing now with Les and the representatives.

“Tom is a very talented player, good character – well liked by the playing squad – and he’s shown his quality in his performances for QPR, so those discussions are certainly ongoing.”

Meanwhile, Dom Ball faces a fitness test ahead of Rangers’ final match of the season, against Luton.

QPR target strong finish

Rangers could finish as high as eighth in the table if they end a promising campaign with a win.

Warburton said: “We could finish eighth and we could finish 11th, so we’ve got to make sure we finish strongly tomorrow. We’ve got make sure we do the job against a very good Luton team.

“I think if we finish in the top 10 it will be a very good year and we can hopefully build on that and keep moving forward.

“I was pleased with last season for various reasons and hopefully we can get 10 points better this season and be solid in the top 10.

“Then we’ve got to make sure we use the summer well in terms of recharging and then it’s all about starting next season well and moving forward.”
