QPR transfers: Rio Ferdinand a great signing, says ex-Man United star
QPR transfers: Keith Gillespie backs the Hoops's bid to sign 35-year-old centre-half Rio Ferdinand
Rio Ferdinand would be a great signing for Queens Park Rangers, according to former Manchester United midfielder Keith Gillespie.
The 35-year-old free agent is being heavily linked with a move to the newly-promoted west London side on Tuesday, with the possibility of linking up with his former West Ham United manager Harry Redknapp.
Ferdinand was released by Manchester United at the end of the season after a decorated Red Devils career which saw the defender win six Premier League titles, the Champions League and two League Cups.
And former Northern Ireland international Gillespie feels Ferdinand, who became the world’s most expensive defender when he joined United in a £34m deal from Leeds United in 2002, still has plenty to offer.
Rio Ferdinand is a great signing for QPR. Just what they need to get a stay up Premiership season under their belt. Solid choice.

Ferdinand scored eight goals in 455 appearances in all competitions for United.
