QPR goalkeeper Paddy Kenny looking forward to Bolton test

Super Hoops stopper will not be leaving Loftus Road this summer

Rangers keeper Paddy Kenny has quelled speculation that he is unhappy at QPR by revealing he is on course to be fit for the opening-day Premier League clash with Bolton Wanderers.

Kenny, who has two years remaining on the three-year deal he signed with the Rs last summer, was superb between the posts last season as his side won promotion to the top flight.

Reports last week suggested that talks over a new deal for the 33-year-old had stalled, alerting the interests of several Premier League clubs including West Brom and Swansea City.

But Kenny was included in Neil Warnock’s squad for the pre-season tour of Cornwall, and is in Italy with the rest of the QPR squad ahead of Wednesday’s clash with Cesena.

With the Premier League kick-off a little over two weeks away, Kenny admitted he is focussed solely on the Hoops upcoming campaign.

“I’m probably a little bit short in terms of my match fitness, but that will come this week and I’ll be prepared for Bolton,” said Kenny.
