Jamie Mackie has left Nottingham Forest to join Championship rivals Queens Park Rangers.

Harry Redknapp has suggested on social networking site Twitter that Jamie Mackie will be a success at Queens Park Rangers.

The 29-year-old attacker has left Nottingham Forest to re-sign for his former club and Championship rivals QPR, where he is very popular.

Mackie joined the Reds from QPR in the summer of 2013, but he failed to make a huge impact at the City Ground.

The attacker scored just only goals and created just  32 chances in 45 Championship appearances in the 2013-14 season.

The 29-year-old had a pass accuracy of 75% and a shot accuracy of 55%, and won 28 headers, 37 dribbles and 54 tackles.

The former Plymouth Argyle man was sent out on loan to Championship rivals Reading for the 2014-15 campaign.

Mackie scored five goals and created 24 chances in 32 league appearances for the Royals this past term.

The former Milton Keynes Dons attacker had a pass accuracy of 74% and a shot accuracy of 50%, and won 30 headers, 27 dribbles and 24 tackles.

Former QPR manager Redknapp believes that Mackie will prove to be a good signing for Rangers.

Mackie is a hardworking player, and Rangers know exactly what they will get from him.

Under Chris Ramsey, QPR will be looking to bounce back to the Premier League following their relegation to the Championship at the end of the recently concluded 2014-15 season.

Having not made a huge impact at Forest, Mackie will have a point to prove in 2015-16, and Rangers fans will hope that the attacker turns on the style in his second spell at Loftus Road.
