In Other News...

With more arrivals, I think many R's fans expected a few departures also. With Bradley Orr moving to Blackburn and Matt Connolly being loaned to Reading, there was also a further 2 players released by QPR on this, transfer deadline day.

Midfielder, Petter Vaagan Moen has left by mutual consent and with immediate effect.

The Norwegian midfielder joined the R's in January 2011 after his contract at SK Brann expired and arrived with great promise. However, in his time here he made just two starts and six substitute appearances for the Club.

Also, our longest serving player of 8 and a half years, Martin Rowlands has left QPR, again, by mutual consent.

Rowlands arrived at Loftus Road in the close season of 2011, signing from Brentford and went on to make over 200 appearances for the R's, scoring 37 goals along the way.

A fans favourite and a solid performer who sadly was dogged by injury during his time here and fell out of favour during the Neil Warnock reign as unfortunately, he was injured when he arrived. In February 2011 Rowlands signed for Millwall, on an emergency one month loan, after only playing 23 minutes of competitive football for QPR in the 2010/11 season. His only appearance this season was a disappointing outing in the Carling Cup vs Rochdale and he was soon loaned out for a successful spell at Wycombe, where he was reunited with friend and another QPR Legend, Gareth Ainsworth. It is hottly tipped that Rowlands will be returning to Adams Park very soon!!

Lofty Heights would like to wish both Rowly and PVM all the very best for their careers in the future.

    Martin was a great servant for the R's and at one time was the only decent player we had!- I even remember collections being made to save the club from having to sell him!! Great shame that he didn't quite recover his previous excellent form which could have served us well at the higher level. Sad to see him leave in this way !!
