Rangers strengthened their defensive options with the addition of Arsenal left-back Armand Traore just short of last summer's transfer deadline day.
Penning a three year-deal in W12, Traore followed a number of signings through the Loftus Road door after Tony Fernandes' takeover of QPR.
The 22 year-old - along with a number of those new arrivals - made his Hoops debut against Newcastle United in September.
His second outing in R's colours demonstrated his attacking attributes, assisting DJ Campbell for Rangers’ third goal in a 3-0 defeat of Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The former Gunners ace, however, was dismissed for two bookable offences in the following match at home versus Aston Villa.
But Traore returned from suspension with a step in his stride, with further assists in encounters against Manchester City and Stoke City.
The Senegal international jetted out to the African Cup of Nations in January.
Following the arrival of Mark Hughes and a number of defensive additions during the January transfer window, Traore was restricted to a number of substitute appearances after the New Year.
The pacy full-back's most memorable moment from last season was arguably his assist for QPR's second goal on the final day of the season at Man City.
Brought on as a substitute, Traore's speed was too much for Blues skipper Vincent Kompany to deal with, with his inch-perfect centre enabling Jamie Mackie to head the R's into a 2-1 lead.
Rangers went on to lose 3-2 thanks to two late, late City goals - but safety was secured thanks to Bolton Wanderers' inability to beat Stoke at the Britannia Stadium.
