AUSTIN HAM­MERS TWO-GOAL RI­POSTE

The Football League Paper - - FRONT PAGE -

THERE doesn’t ap­pear to be much wrong with Char­lie Austin’s knees!

The QPR striker rounded off an event­ful week with two goals against Rother­ham in a 4-2 vic­tory yesterday – and is now the top scorer in the Cham­pi­onship.

Ear­lier in the week, £15m-rated Austin had been left fum­ing when West Ham co-owner David Sul­li­van ruled out meet­ing Rangers’ ask­ing price and al­leged he had no lig­a­ments in his right knee.

Austin hit back at an ‘out­ra­geous slur’ on his pro­fes­sion­al­ism and re­sponded with goals yesterday.

QPR boss Chris Ram­sey said:“(Eng­land boss) Roy Hodg­son has picked play­ers from the Cham­pi­onship be­fore, so he may be bet­ter off here scor­ing a hat­ful.”
