Ian Holloway has all but given up hope of signing Luke Freeman.

QPR’s reported £250,000 bid for the Bristol City wingman was turned down flat, even though Freeman has only six months left on his contract at Ashton Gate.

As GetWestLondon pointed out, the player holds all the cards, even though his present club are pushing to get a decision one way or the other over a new deal with City or being moved on to the highest bidder.

After all, Freeman goes for nothing in the summer if he sees out his current deal.

Rangers boss Ian Holloway even had a Robins fan give him grief over the on-off situation.

Ollie also claims the reported Rs bid was wide of the mark.

He said: “I think signing Freeman has gone.

“We had a chance to do something, they didn't want our offer.

“They've let it out at the wrong amount, I know what I offered.

“A Bristol City fan shouted at me yesterday in his car when I was down in Bristol, but get your facts right.

“The fact is if you're letting your players run out of contract, and they've only got six months to go, that's your fault not anyone else's.”
