Ex-Man Utd star ‘got taxis to training because we’d go out and get hammered’

Ex-Manchester United youngster Danny Simpson has revealed they had a 'Tuesday club' at QPR – where players would go out on a Tuesday evening.

Simpson joked it was team bonding, and players would get "hammered" if they drove to training instead of getting a taxi in the morning, so they could go out. Speaking on Undr The Cosh, he said: "We had Tuesday club, for those of us going out – bonding with each other… can't drop us all mate!"

"If you came training, on a Tuesday, in your car you'd get hammered, you had to come in a taxi.

"We'd go out straight out round London in the pubs, on a pub crawl, I'm not really a beer drinker, but Richard Dunne mate, he could sink pints. He'd be on his third and I'd be finishing my first."

QPR earned promotion to the Premier League in 2014 – having dropped back down to the Championship in 2013 – thanks to a play-off final win.

The R's went down to ten men shortly after the hour mark, when Gary O'Neil was given his marching orders.

Simpson added: "There were ten of us, and I look back to that final, when there were ten of us and we're digging deep, getting peppered. It makes a difference [team bonding]."

Bobby Zamora was the eventual hero, when he nodded home to send QPR back into the English top flight in the 91st minute.
