QPR boss praises midfielder
NEIL Warnock believes recent signing Petter Vaagan Moen can become a regular in the QPR midfield during the next two year.
The Norwegian international started in Rangers’ FA Cup tie at Blackburn and has been a used substitute in all but one of the club’s league matches since his free transfer from SK Brann in January.
“Petter’s fitted in,” said the QPR manager. “When I watched him, I always knew he was an English kind of player – he’s not afraid of a tackle.
“He’s got a great left foot, takes good free-kicks and there’s his personality – he’s bubbly and everybody likes him.
“He’s given us a new dimension because, up to now, we’ve only had [Alejandro] Faurlin who’s a natural left-footer.

“We thought, in the circumstances, he’d be a good signing. He’s going to try and establish himself over the next couple of years and I’d be very surprised if he doesn’t play a lot of the games in that time.”
The 27-year-old midfielder, who spent five seasons with Brann before signing for Rangers, is in line to win his eighth full cap for Norway in their friendly against Poland on Wednesday night.
