According to reports in Scotland, Queens Park Rangers have agreed deals to sign Scottish Premiership stars Lee Wallace and Liam Kelly. Mark Warburton is keen to reunite with the pair following on from working with both at Rangers.
After spending 8 years at Ibrox, Wallace finds himself surplus to requirements following a falling out with then current boss Graeme Murty as him and team-mate Kenny Miller were suspended by the club for making comments shortly after Rangers lost 4-0 to Celtic. He is now been unable to force his way back into Steven Gerrard’s plans.
West London side QPR are looking for a new left back as they released Jake Bidwell earlier on this summer.
Rangers supporters seem to be disappointed with the way Wallace is leaving the club and say he has been a fantastic servant for them so I am sure QPR fans are pleased to hear that he could be a very good signing.
He will be bring plenty of experience and sure will show the ability he has to become a solid left back in the Championship.
Scotland goalkeeper Liam Kelly has triggered a release clause in his contract to leave Livingston. Warburton is looking to bring the 23 year old to Loftus Road as he is looking for a keeper who is good with his feet and has good distribution.
Livingston went ahead and signed him after he impressed having spent the previous season on loan from Ibrox, helping them win promotion from the Scottish Championship.
Kelly who is currently with the Scotland squad preparing for Euro 2020 qualifiers against Cyprus and Belgium, made 42 appearances this season as Livingston finished ninth in the top flight.
Livingston boss Gary Holt said: “We have been working extremely hard in trying to keep Liam. Unfortunately it’s not to be and we move on”.
