ANGEL Rangel has praised QPR for supporting him throughout his rehab as he works to recover from an injury sustained in one of the final games of last season.
The 37-year-old suffered a ruptured Achilles against Luton Town in July with his contract at the club coming to an end.
Rangel posted an update on his rehabilitation recently.

“It’s going very well,” Rangel said. “The only thing is that it’s a very slow process. It’s been almost 11 weeks and I can’t walk properly yet.
“Unfortunately it’s one of those bad injuries in football, my Achilles has ruptured completely.”
QPR have assisted him throughout his rehabilitation and Rangel has praised the club for their support.
The Spaniard is currently spending the week with QPR and returning to Swansea to spend time with his family at the weekends.
He has described his recovery as “mentally tough” but has enjoyed completing his rehabilitation in familiar surroundings.
“The main thing for me is that I’m still in the footballing environment and that’s why I’m glad that I’m doing my rehab at QPR,” Rangel revealed.
“They are constantly helping me. Not just with my rehab but also supporting me mentally through the tough moments.
“Even the manager is calling me regularly to see how I am. We see each other every day. The manager is also injured. He had an operation on his knee so we have a bit of banter between us to see who recovers quicker!”
Rangel amassed 374 appearances in all competitions during 11 years at Swansea City.
He joined QPR after being released by the Welsh club in 2018 and has made 41 appearances in two seasons at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.
