Grant Hall pleased with improvements he's made at Queens Park Rangers

Grant Hall initially joined Queens Park Rangers as a back-up player.

Grant Hall has told Get West London that he feels he has gone from ‘strength to strength’ since joining Queens Park Rangers from Tottenham Hotspur.

Hall had enjoyed a series of loan spells during his younger years, but he decided that the time was right to move on from White Hart Lane last summer.

The 24-year-old initially was expected to be a covering player at QPR, but his form has been highly impressive.

Hall has arguably been Rangers’ best player throughout the season so far, but the powerful defender insists that he still has plenty of learning to do until he becomes the finished article.

“I need to keep improving, because I’m still learning, and I think at times I’m only going to learn the hard way,” Hall said.

“The improvement to the physical side of my game has been the most pleasing thing for me, that and being consistent.

“I came in as a back-up player and have gone from strength to strength.”

Hall started the season way down the pecking order for places at Loftus Road, but his emergence has been one of the biggest positives to come out of a disappointing campaign.

The commanding centre-back has made 35 league appearances for Rangers this term, despite only playing four Championship matches up until October.

Hall now looks set to play a key role for QPR in the years ahead, as manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink looks to build a young, British squad.
