Defender Clint Hill takes on the skippering role at Queens Park Rangers for the remainder of the campaign.

Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp has handed the club's captaincy duties to Clint Hill for the remainder of the season.

The centre-back had been given the role in recent weeks while Park Ji-Sung had a spell on the sidelines with a muscular injury.

However, despite the fact that the South Korean midfielder has returned to action, Redknapp has confirmed that Hill will remain his skipper.

"Clint is a great character, a good lad and a fantastic professional," Redknapp told the club's official website. "He leads by example and has been superb for me since the moment I walked through the door.

"You know what you're going to get from Clint when he plays and that's 100%. He puts his body on the line for the club and that's what we need. We are in a battle to stay in the Premier League and we need players like him."

Hill has made 89 appearances for the R's since his arrival on a free transfer in 2010.
