QPR have announced that defender Angel Rangel has left the club following the expiration of his contract at The Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.
Rangel joined QPR following his departure from Swansea in the summer of 2018, and went onto make 41 appearances in all competitions for the Rs, scoring two goals for the club, both of which came in a 2-2 draw at Stoke in November 2018.
The Spaniard’s contract with QPR expired at the end of last season, and it has now been confirmed that Rangel will be not be given a new deal by Mark Warburton’s side.
However, Rangel’s affiliation with QPR is not completely over just yet, with the 37-year-old set to remain at the club as he continues his recovery from a torn Achilles suffered in a 1-1 draw at Luton last month.
Taking to Twitter to react to news of Rangel’s departure, plenty of QPR fans were keen to pay tribute to the defender for his contributions during his time at the club.
Here, we take a look at what some of those supporters had to say.
What a player ,what a professional and seems like a true gentlemen . Best of luck on your future would love to see him added coaching staff. 👏👏👏👏👏

Superb professional and ambassador for both Swansea & QPR. QPR assisting with his rehab even though he has been released says it all. I would love to see him back at the Swans in some capacity.
