Angel Rangel cannot wait to play under Mark Warburton after the experienced defender signed a new one-year deal at QPR.

The 36-year-old first joined the R’s in August 2018 on a short-term deal before extending his contract until the end of the season in December.

Spaniard Rangel, who made 20 appearances and scored two goals for Rangers, who finished 19th in the Championship last season, highlighted the positive atmosphere at Loftus Road as one of the main reasons for him joining.

“It feels great to be back – I’m very happy,” Rangel told Rangers’ club website.

“I had such a fantastic time here last season. QPR tick all of the boxes for me.

“There’s such a great group of lads in the dressing room, the environment is very positive, and I wanted to have the connection that I had with the supporters again.

“The new manager has come in with a new philosophy on football – a style that I was used to for many years at Swansea as we went from League One to the Premier League.

“I’ve always enjoyed playing that way and, all things considered, the decision to come back here was a very easy one.”

Rangel is QPR’s seventh permanent signing of the summer after Liam Kelly was signed for £50,000 from Scottish outfit Livingstone and six free transfers were brought in in the form of Yoann Barbet, Dylan Duncan, Lee Wallace, Dominic Ball and Conor Masterson.

Warburton added: “Angel’s experience will prove invaluable.

“You want the balance to be right – you want youthful exuberance, that hunger and desire but you need senior players who can apply their experience and knowledge as well.

“You want them to speak to and advise players, to get into them when they have to.

“Players like Angel understand when to do that, what to do and why to do it. I’m delighted to have him back on board because I think he’ll be a real benefit to us.

“He is someone who has played football in a certain type of way for a number of years at Swansea.

“Angel is an attack-minded full-back, who is also disciplined. He is a top professional who is in great condition.

“You could tell from the reaction when he came back in that he’s well liked in the dressing room.

“It’s great to see him back here. He had choices, like all good players do, but he’s thrilled to come back to QPR.”
