New Queens Park Rangers manager Chris Ramsey has been full of praise for winger Matt Phillips for the 23-year-old’s recent upturn in form for the Hoops, reports Sky
The Scotland international, who was signed from Blackpool in 2013, has struggled for game time this season. Former manager Harry Redknapp barely used Phillips at all, and couldn’t get the best from him when he did feature, but the 23-year-old is hitting form under Ramsey, and could well be key to the Hoops’ survival.
Phillips set up both goals in Queens Park Rangers’ 2-0 win against Sunderland, and shone against Southampton prior to their victory over the Black Cats. His manager feels the Scot could be pivotal to ensure the goals can continue flowing, while stressing how Phillips’ contributions from now until the end of the season could shape the entire club’s future.
Ramsey believes Matt Phillips is fast becoming one of the side’s most important players due to his impressive creative attributes, and is hoping he can continue to shine in Queens Park Rangers’ next league game against fellow relegation-threatened side Hull City on Saturday afternoon at the KC Stadium.
