‘Still going strong’, ‘Worth keeping’ – This QPR veteran has been a surprise package this season



Angel Rangel is still going at 37-years-old.

He’s continuing to defy his age and has played another important role for the club, featuring 18 times in the Championship. Injury has beset him on occasion but when fit, Rangel still looks as good as he did all them years ago with Swansea.

Whilst Rangel has been an impressive number this season, he like everybody else in the QPR side has come under scrutiny at times – largely because of his age and subsequent lack of pace, but the clout around Rangel has been mainly positive.

Only time will tell regarding his future but for now, he’s leaving at the end of the season. He’d depart with fond memories of the club, and the fans of him too – he’s been an unlikely saviour at times for QPR, and here’s what fans have been saying about him this season:
