Andy Sinton hails Tjaronn Chery

Loftus Road

The 27-year-old has impressed for QPR since joining last summer.

Speaking to the club's official website, Andy Sinton has claimed that Tjaronn Chery was a "shining light" for Queens Park Rangers this past season.

The 27-year-old midfielder enjoyed a fruitful first season at Loftus Road following a £2.2 million move (The Daily Mail) from Dutch outfit Groningen last summer, netting 10 goals in 25 Championship starts and setting up another four.

It was a campaign in which several QPR men failed to perform on a consistent basis, resulting in the West Londoners finishing 12th in England's second tier following their first year back after Premier League relegation.

On the whole, it was rather disappointing season which saw Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink replace Chris Ramsey midway through it, but Sinton says that the performances of Chery represents a big reason to be cheerful.

"For me, Tjaronn Chery has been the real shining light as an attack-minded player," he told the club's official website.

"During the back-end of the season he was playing in what I consider to be his best position, centrally, and got ten goals in his first year with us.

"As an attack-minded player myself, Tjaronn has been the big plus from last season."

It will be a difficult summer for Hasselbaink, who must do his utmost to build a promotion-challenging team on quite a limited budget in comparison to what Rangers had spent in recent years.
