QPR defender Luke Young is close to calling it a day on his 15-year career, according to his boss.
The 33-year-old right back has not featured since Rangers were beaten 3-1 by Sunderland a year ago next month when the former Aston Villa player failed to own up to a hip problem, and paid for it by losing his place in the team.
Since when Young (pic) has continued to suffer the same hip injury that kept him from being named in the 25-man squad both now and last August.
However, Harry Redknapp reckons the right-back who totalled £10.5 million in transfers with 400 league games behind him, and who earned the last of his seven England caps in 2009, is almost at the end of an illustrious career.
The manager explained: “Luke is struggling.
“He’s had these injuries since before I came here, and he still can’t get fit. He doesn’t feel good about his injury. His future’s looking, you know... and he’s got to look at it.
“He’s got a similar thing to what Bobby Zamora had, but it’s not looking good for him.”
