Danny Simpson believes he could be a future England player if QPR get back to the Premier League.
And if the right-back gets to wear the three Lions, a heap of thanks go to former Manchester United team-mate Gary Neville.
Of course, the fly in any ointment is getting past Wigan in tonight’s Championship play-off semi-final against Wigan after a 0-0 draw in the first leg.
But the defender insists Harry Redknapp as Rangers boss will only boost his international aspirations.
He said: “If we get back into the Premier League and we have a decent couple of seasons, we have a manager whose helped players get into the England team and he’s very well respected.
“I’m hopeful I can make an England squad, because it’s one of my ambitions.”
Simpson was restored to the Rangers side in March after back injury, and paid tribute to his Manchester United pal for the progress that has made him an Rs favourite.
He explained: “ Gary gave me great advice, which started with live your life right, and don’t be scared to make it as tough as possible for the winger and win your battle against him. Get inside, and be a rash over all him, and it’s stood me in good stead.”
