Chris Ramsey believes that Queens Park Rangers midfielder Michael Doughty has a bright future.

Chris Ramsey has told The Brent & Kilburn Times that Queens Park Rangers midfielder Michael Doughty has a bright future.

“Grant (Hall) showed that some parts of the projects were actually working, but unfortunately for some of the other young players like Michael Doughty - who I believe will become a very good player for the club in the future - he wasn’t able to get a regular run in the team,” said the former QPR head coach.

Doughty has been on the books of QPR his entire professional career so far, but he is far from guaranteed a place in the starting lineup.

The 23-year-old midfielder has played on loan for a number of clubs, including Crawley Town, St. Johnstone, Stevenage and Gillingham.

It seems that Ramsey, who was sacked as the Rangers head coach earlier this month, rates Doughty highly, and perhaps the midfielder will get more chances as the season progresses.

Doughty has played five times in the Championship so far this campaign and has a pass accuracy of 53%. The midfielder has won nine headers, two dribbles and 10 tackles.

QPR are 15th in the Championship table at the moment with 20 points from 17 matches, just five points above the relegation zone.
