Queens Park Rangers’ defender Angel Rangel believes his side would’ve been in the play-offs should the season have continued as normal.
Today would’ve marked the final game of the Championship season. Fans would’ve been treated to a day of relegation, promotion and play-off clinching, and the veteran Spaniard thinks his QPR side would’ve been in the top-six.
He posted this message on Twitter earlier today:

“Doesn’t get any easier, man!’ Began the 37-year-old. “Saturday 2nd of May, last game of the season was West Brom away. For sure we would’ve been in the play-offs.”
QPR finished the campaign in their finest form to date under Mark Warburton. They’d just completed a second-half comeback against Preston to go six games unbeaten, and to place themselves just six-points outside the play-off places.
With nine games left to play, 27 points left to win, QPR could well have snatched a spot in the top-six if their current form continued through to now.
Can you get 15 out of 15 on this QPR quiz? Have a go now!
For much of the season so far, QPR have proved inconsistent. They’ve proved prolific at either end of the pitch and have made for good viewing, bringing on the likes of Ebere Eze and Bright Osayi-Samuel.
But would they have had enough to clinch a spot on the top-six come now?
QPR could definitely have reached the play-offs. They had some winnable fixtures left and given their form going into the temporary stop in the campaign, who’s to say that Warburton wouldn’t be taking his side to Wembley this month?
