QPR supporters take to Twitter to rave about Clint Hill

Loftus Road QPR

Veteran defender Clint Hill returned to the Queens Park Rangers side against Derby County, and he certainly made an impression with the club's supporters.

 

At 37 years of age, Clint Hill's professional career is probably close to coming to an end, but after his performance against Derby County on Tuesday evening, it sounds as if Queens Park Rangers fans wish that he was 10 years younger.

 

Last night, Hill made his return to the senior squad for the first time in two months, and during his absence, the Hoops recorded just three victories from a possible 10.

 

However, that became four against the Rams as goals from Tjarron Chery and Gabriele Angella earned QPR a 2-0 victory against the promotion hopefuls, and although he didn't get on the scoresheet, it was Hill who received the most praise on Twitter after the match.

Hill has featured for a number of clubs during his 19-year playing career - including Tranmere Rovers, Stoke City and Crystal Palace - but he has never remained at a team longer than at QPR, where he is currently in the middle of his sixth season.

He has made just nine appearances in all competitions this season, but overall, he has played 179 times for the Hoops, scoring five goals.
