So long, and thanks for all the hair product. - Julian Finney
QPR striker Djibril Cisse has left the club to join Qatari club Al Gharafa on loan until the end of the season.
The 31-year-old's exit comes after the Loftus Road outfit signed fellow France international forward Loic Remy, 26, from Marseille for a club record £8m.
Cisse, always the class act, tweeted to Rangers fans.
Thanks to all the qpr fans and sorry i didnt do as goodas last season.thanks for all the support and no doubt we r staying up .#COYRS— djibril cisse (@DjibrilCisse) January 20, 2013
Not that we had any doubts about Loic Remy as Ranger's one and only, first choice striker, but this certainly puts an end to any speculation.
Meanwhile, Remy has been posted to the Y! game. The Rs face a tough match at home against Manchester City, but then have a really nice run of fixtures. They play the top teams at Loftus road, where they can be very tough to beat, and have a pretty easy run - relatively, they are QPR and at the foot of the table - through the end of the season.
Remy - he of one shot, one goal this weekend against West Ham - looks a good, early barn door candidate.
