Queens Park Rangers manager Ian Holloway has revealed his side doing “quite well” is the reason behind Ravel Morrison’s limited opportunities, since his return to Loftus Road in January, reports Get West London.

Holloway brought Morrison back to QPR during the January transfer window, signing the 24-year old on-loan with the view to a permanent transfer from Lazio.

However, QPR are now the form side in the Sky Bet Championship and Morrison has found it hard to work his way into Holloway’s plans.

Speaking about the 24-year old’s exclusion, Holloway said: “He’d only played five games in two years when he arrived, so it’s down to him really, getting in the team and earning it.

“That’s what he’s trying to do at the moment, but my team has been doing quite well.

“He was far enough away to still be trying to earn it, but hopefully he will, and hopefully our fans will see him play.

“But really, deep down, that’s down to him. I brought him in to play, so he’s got to get to the level of where I want him to be.”

Morrison has been limited to just four substitute appearances for the Hoops, the last of those coming in Saturday’s 5-1 hammering of Rotherham United.

Despite their January signing hardly featuring, QPR are in magnificent form, having won five from their last seven fixtures, which has helped Holloway’s side move up to 15th in the Championship table.

Following this week’s international break, QPR return to league action on March 31st when they face Derby County, who are looking for their first win under new manager Gary Rowett.
