England winger Shaun Wright Phillips joined the R's from Manchester City with just hours to spare on the final day of the 2011 summer transfer window, agreeing a four-year deal.
The 30 year-old produced a scintillating performance on his debut in a 0-0 draw against Newcastle United at Loftus Road and was equally impressive in the following match at Wolverhampton Wanderers as the R's ran out 3-0 winners.
Wright-Phillips also proved to be a thorn in the side of former Club Chelsea at Loftus Road in October when his pace proved too much for Jose Bosingwa. The Portuguese defender was sent off for bringing him down midway through the first half of a game Rangers would eventually win 1-0.
It would prove to be a season of no goals for Wright-Phillips, although that shouldn't have been the case. With Rangers leading West Bromwich Albion 1-0 in December, Wright-Phillips scored a sensational volley which was wrongly ruled out for offside. The R's drew the game 1-1.
In the closing weeks of the season, Wright-Phillips was limited to a place on the substitutes' bench but he returned to the starting line-up for our final game of the campaign at the Etihad Stadium.
The ex-City man justified his selection with a hard-working display against the free-flowing football of the Champions-to-be.
