Queens Park Rangers fizzled out with a disappointing 16th place in the championship table, scoring just 58 goals in the process.
With reports that the Hoops are set to announce Steve McClaren as their new manager, following the departure of Ian Holloway at the conclusion of the season, his eyes are apparently turning to his former Derby County front man, Chris Martin.
The 29-year-old has been linked with a transfer to Loftus Road, and seemingly out of Gary Rowett’s plans at Pride Park, spend time on loan at Reading since January.
While he couldn’t find his scoring boots at the Madejski Stadium, scoring just one goal in his short stay with the Royals, McClaren could turn to the Scotsman for goals next season.
Whoever is in the driving seat for the Rams next season, taking a punt on Chris Martin could be beneficial for both parties.
As you can see above, we are taking a look back at Chris Martin’s individual season, in which he made 33 appearances.
While the Scotland international’s goal tally of just two doesn’t seem to be a great return rate, 24 of those appearances have been off the bench.
However, with an average shots per game of just 0.8 and a tally of 0.9 key passes per game on average, his numbers may suggest he is past his best.
But, with an average aerial duels won of 2 per game, maybe this is how Steve McClaren can put Martin to good use. That’s if either of them end up at Loftus Road next season.
