Holloway wants summer of ins and outs at QPR

Ian Holloway reiterated his determination to revamp QPR’s squad after they ended a miserable season with a 4-0 defeat at Norwich.

The result, Rangers’ seventh loss in eight matches, meant they finished 18th in the Championship – the club’s lowest placing for 10 years.

Now manager Holloway is keen to bring in new faces.

“It’s all about the people we bring. I’ve got to get them right,” he said.

“I’m old enough to know that it’s not about today. It’s all about pre-season, it’s about getting the scouting network to find us some new different faces.

“If I can move some things in and out it’ll be a joy to be able to try to get better than we have been.”

Rangers were soundly beaten at Carrow Road and Holloway admitted the scoreline could have been even more embarrassing, but he defended the effort of his players.

“I don’t think my lads didn’t try, but we were nowhere near,” he said.

“We had one or two efforts, but that was one game too much for the squad, with the injuries we had.

“It just proved a huge learning curve for the people we have got in there and it was probably too much for them on the day.”
