Conor Washington is yet to score for Queens Park Rangers since he moved from Peterborough United in January.

Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony has predicted on social media site Twitter that Conor Washington will ‘tear apart’ the Championship next season.

Washington moved from Peterborough to Queens Park Rangers in the January transfer window.

So far the 23-year-old has made a slow start at Loftus Road, with many of his appearances being as a substitute.

Washington has made just four starts for Rangers, with Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink seemingly reluctant to throw the youngster into his first-team.

The Newport County man is yet to score for the R’s, but his form has still been good enough to earn him his first two senior caps for Northern Ireland.

Washington scored his first goal for Michael O’Neill’s side yesterday, in their friendly win over Slovenia, and MacAnthony believes that this will be the start of great things for the rapid front man.

Washington now looks to have a great chance of being in Northern Ireland’s squad which travels to France for EURO 2016.

While with Peterborough, Washington scored 27 goals in 82 League One appearances.
