QPR have not given up hope of keeping hold of Celtic target Bright Osayi-Samuel.
The 22-year-old attracted interest from clubs in the summer after an impressive campaign last season and he is now on Celtic’s radar.
The winger is yet to sign a new deal at QPR and his current contract is due to expire at the end of this season.
Speculation has continued to grow about what Osayi-Samuel will do, and QPR boss Mark Warburton took the decision to leave him out of last night’s game at Barnsley as he didn’t believe the youngster’s head was in the right place.
Warburton, however, has not given up hope of keeping his star winger and believes he may yet stay in west London.
“Absolutely there is hope with Brighty. He is in a very good place at the club. He is developing at the club,” he said. “I hope very much he can see that is the case.
“The contractual talks have been ongoing for a while now.
“He is a great lad Brighty, you know what I think of him, but his head has got to be in the right place for a game of football.
“I just felt tonight it wasn’t right for Brighty and for the team as well, because there is a lot of boys working really hard and it does them good to have a think about things.
“As I say, contractual discussions move along at certain paces, and right now I just wanted Brighty to have a clear head and make the right decision.”
