Rangers defender Clint Hill claims there is little chance he will make a return to QPR next summer.

The veteran centre-back, 38, has been linked with move back to his former employers once his Ibrox deal expires next summer.

But he admitted: "I don't know where that story has come from. Maybe they needed to fill some space in the paper and they have put that in.

"I've not heard anything and I'd be very surprised if it did come off because four or five months ago I was released by QPR.

"I've not had any thoughts about next season. I'm too old to even think about that.

"I try to take each game as it comes. I don't know what the situation is next season. I'll see how the body is and how it repairs and then judge from there."



Aston Villa defender rejects Rangers move

Joleon Lescott has decided against a move to Rangers following talks with the club.

Lescott visited Glasgow but it is understood he has told manager Mark Warburton that he does not want to move to Scotland for family reasons.

The 34-year-old, who has a young family, was available on a free transfer with Aston Villa prepared to pay a portion of his final year's salary. The former Everton player has also been linked with a move to David Moyes' Sunderland.

Warburton could now turn to Philippe Senderos in his search for a fourth centre-back. The 31-year-old former Arsenal defender is a free agent and has been training with the club this week.

Rangers are still on course to sign Preston striker Joe Garner in a £1.5million deal, but it is unlikely to be completed before Saturday's Ladbrokes Premiership clash with Motherwell.
