New QPR signing Kieron Dyer is convinced the club is moving in the right direction after speaking to Hoops boss Neil Warnock.
With odds of 7/4, Rangers are third-favourites for relegation in bwin’s football betting market.
This means a successful £25 free bet on QPR to finish in the bottom three, available to new customers who sign up for a bwin account, would return £68.75.
However, Dyer says the club’s ethos is to consider the upper echelons of the league rather than glance nervously at the foot of the table.
As such, he is looking forward to helping the team achieve success over the duration of his 12-month contract rather than worrying about relegation six-pointers.
“I’m just delighted to be here,” he commented.
“QPR are an ambitious club. When I sat down with Neil and he explained the vision for the club I wanted to be part of it. He totally sold the club to me.
“I’ve got something to prove after the couple of years I’ve had, but I feel good and I’m really looking forward to playing my part next season.”
Dyer was a free agent after being released by West Ham, where he spent an injury-plagued four years and made only 30 league appearances.
While Warnock admits taking on a player with such a lengthy medical history is something of a gamble, it could also be to QPR’s advantage.
“He has a lot of experience and is desperate to play in the Premier League again. I like the hunger he’s got and he wants to prove a point,” he commented.
Meanwhile, QPR have also clinched the signing of former Cardiff striker Jay Bothroyd.
Another free transfer, Bothroyd scored 18 league goals for the Bluebirds last season and won his first full England cap on the back of his impressive form.
