Posted on by Site Admin

Scotsman George Whitelaw’s spell at Loftus Road was quite short lived. He played a total of 26 First Team games for the R’s from the date of his arrival from Sunderland in March 1959, up to his transfer a few months later to Halifax Town, scoring ten goals along the way. This however is only a basic statistic, there is far more to it than that. In the grand scheme of QPR FC history, burly George Whitelaw would probably be … Continue reading

Interview With Kevin Gallen – Part One

Posted on by Site Admin

PF: First question is from jjcolls. Which front men did you enjoy playing with in your time at Rangers ? KG: Well, obviously I would say Les Ferdinand, great player as everyone knows. Great thrill when you’re a young lad starting off in your professional career and you get to play with someone with so much experience, so much quality.

He was so badly injured at Ypres in Flanders that he … Continue reading
