If QPR win the Championship play-off final tomorrrow expect to see a version of R Kelly’s ‘I Believe I Can Fly’ on the web by Sunday.
Team-mate Danny Simpson has pledged to post the rite-of-passage film of song demanded by team-mates when they arrive – and apparently Ravel Morrison’s version was up there with the best.
More seriously, Morrison will take one step closer to an England shirt if he performs at Wembley, claims Simpson.
The pair go way back to their time at Manchester United, both are from the city, and although Morrison has had his brushes with trouble, the Rangers right-back reckons Morrison's a changed man since he arrived on loan from West Ham in January.
“I don’t live too far from him (in Manchester) and I’ve known Ravel since he was young,” said Simpson.
“I’ve given him a bit of advice; but most his improvement comes from himself. For me, he’s an England player in the future.
“He’s a little joker; but I’ve noticed a big change. He’s maturing and starting to realise potential since he came. A bit of a devil? I’d like to say he has been, but he’s been tops.”
Simpson reckons that when he steps out in front of 89,000 at Wembley it will be the biggest game of his career, despite starting with United and playing for them in the Champions League.
Previously, an appearance against Roma and the collection of Francesco Totti’s shirt at the end was the zenith, but beating Derby will supplant that.
“You completely forget about the season you’ve had,” he said. “There will be every single emotion running through my body on the day, but with the players we’ve got, after five minutes it will become just a game we need to win.”
Steve McClaren will be in the other technical area although the Derby boss had a spell with Rangers earlier in the season before moving on to Pride Park.
Is that a disadvantage to Hoops bearing in mind the former England coach knows the fallibilities of the squad, including Morrison when both were at Old Trafford?
“I’m sure he knows all about Ravel,” Simpson said, “and Steve worked with us and he knows all about us. But in a one-off game, that goes out the window and it depends on who wants it the most.
“We’re all a bit disappointed we didn’t go up automatically, but we’ve got to give credit to Burnley and Leicester. However, the manner in which we won the second leg of the play-off semi-final stands us in good stead.”
