Rangers confirm new Faurlin contract

Alejandro Faurlin has signed a new one-year contract at QPR.

West London Sport revealed at the start of this month that Faurlin, whose previous contract was due to expire, had agreed to sign the deal he was offered after the end of the season.

The Argentine midfielder, 27, has now put pen to paper to extend his stay with Rangers, who signed him from Instituto in 2009.

Faurlin, a popular figure among R’s fans, returned to action towards the end of last term after battling his way back from a third long-term knee injury in as many years.

Clint Hill, who has also been offered another year’s contract, is considering his future but has indicated to Rangers that he too is likely to stay.

A number of other clubs have shown some interest in the 36-year-old, who would like to take on a coaching role.

He contemplated retiring at the end of the season but is now keen to prolong his playing career.

Hill recently told West London Sport: “I have to say I feel good. I want to play on.

“I did think perhaps this season might be my last but I’ve not missed a training session and in terms of fitness I feel no different to how I did a few years ago.

“It’s fair to say I’m at that age as a player where with each year you wonder if it’ll be your last. The last thing you want is to be a burden.

“But I’ve looked after myself, I’m fit, feel I’ve still got something to give and it’s not like I’ve been relying on my pace to get by, is it?”
