QPR latest: Premier League a 'wonderful step' for Chilean, Kick It Out disappointed in Ferdinand

The latest Queens Park Rangers transfer news, views and rumours.

Mauricio Isla

The man QPR signed from Juventus on loan this summer, Mauricio Isla, says his move to the west London side is a 'wonderful step' in his career.

"It's a wonderful step in my career for many reasons," Isla told Perform.

"Coming to play here in the Premier League is good for me because it's really good football with many strong teams.

"I came into a club with many players with experience such as Rio Ferdinand, [Shaun] Wright-Phillips or [Adel] Taarabt. QPR are a respectful team, which is fine playing in the Premier League."

Rio Ferdinand

Elsewhere, Kick It Out chairman Lord Herman Ouseley is disappointed with Rs defender Rio Ferdinand for using the anti-racism organisation as a 'punching bag' in his latest autobiography.

“Unfortunately we are the punchbag for some people and it’s easy to have a punchbag like us. We’re a soft target and the easiest target," Ouseley told the Guardian.

"Rio should not be attacking the weakest point – the people who are actually supporting him – but the people who were not supporting him. I would have thought the whole of football should have turned up at that court case wanting justice.”

Bobby Zamora/Eduardo Vargas

Meanwhile, QPR striker Bobby Zamora has praised summer loan signing Eduardo Vargas but admits he is 'still finding his feet' in England.

"He’s a very tidy player," he said.

“He’s been with us a few weeks now and he did well again [on Saturday]. He’s still finding his feet and it’s a big difference in the style of football for him since he’s come here to the Premier League.

“It’s not easy, he’s still only young, he’s come all the way over here and he doesn’t speak any English so it takes time.”
