QPR have to drop Rob Green to avoid his contract clause coming into play, according to former boss Ian Holloway.

Green will trigger a new one-year deal should he play five more games for the R’s and the club are not willing to make that happen.

The 35-year-old is set to leave this month and Holloway admits he would do the same thing if he were Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.

“I’ve read that Rob Green is just five games away from triggering a new one-year contract,” Holloway told SkySports.

“That’s a common thing in football for older players, but the easiest way to deal with it is to drop him.

“Let’s be honest, at 35-years-old he’s not going to improve. If he doesn’t get his contract, then QPR will spend that money on someone else - that’s football for you.”

Holloway believes the R’s could go after Burton stopper Jon McLaughlan to replace Green.

“Jimmy might want to go back and get his former goalkeeper at Burton [Jon McLaughlan] - he keeps plenty of clean sheets,” he added.
