Former Reading striker Chris Martin has joined Queens Park Rangers on a short-term deal until the end of the season, just weeks after leaving Bristol City.

The former Scotland international scored once in 10 appearances for the Royals at the back end of the 2017/18 campaign, but is best known for his seven year association with Derby County, where he scored nearly a century of goals.

Moving to Ashton Gate in 2020, he scored 15 goals in nearly 100 matches before being released last month.

“I am delighted to get things wrapped up,” Chris told the club website

“I am really looking forward to this opportunity. The phone was ringing and there were options, so it was nice to know you were wanted – and that is what I felt from the manager and the club. 

“They made their feelings clear in terms of how much I can contribute here, and I feel the same. I think there is the potential for it to go really well.”

With fellow Scot Lyndon Dykes recovering from being hospitalised, it is likely that the 34-year-old will start regularly at Loftus Road- something he hasn't done since August.
