Queens Park Rangers defender Grant Hall praises Chris Ramsey

Chris Ramsey was sacked as Queens Park Rangers manager last week.

Queens Park Rangers defender Grant Hall has labelled Chris Ramsey as a ‘top class’ coach to Get West London, just days after the 53-year-old departed Loftus Road.

Ramsey was sacked as QPR boss last week, but Hall has expressed his gratitude to the Bristol-born boss for developing his career.

Hall was coached by Ramsey as a youngster, when the pair where both at Tottenham Hotspur.

And the centre-back said: “When I left Brighton to go to Tottenham, it was the right thing to do, and I have no regrets.

“Things didn’t work out - such is football. But there was Gareth Bale and Luka Modric; and I’m walking in star struck. There were top class coaches like Les [Ferdinand], Tim [Sherwood], and Chris (Ramsey) and they helped me develop.

“The technical side was a lot different to what I was used to. It was a lot sharper.”

Hall was brought to QPR by Ramsey during the summer transfer window, with his career at Spurs failing to take off.

The powerful centre-back never really threatened to break into the Lilywhites’ starting line-up, but he has made a decent start to life at Loftus Road.

Although QPR’s form has not been particularly good over the early part of the campaign, Hall has settled in well and seen plenty of competitive action.

Hall has already racked up 13 appearances this term and will be hoping to continue playing a part, even now Ramsey has departed the club.
