QPR passed the first test of their financial resolve when they binned any further interest in Iceland striker Jon Dadi Bodvarsson after he signed for Wolves.
Rangers made a vow to avoid the spending excesses of the past after the Black Country club offered and got accepted by his club Kaiserslautern, something in the region of £2.7m for the Euro 2016 forward.
Hoops posted their intention to the tune of £1m. But the Molinueux club now has new Chinese owners ready to spend big having jettisoned former Rs assistant boss Kenny Jackett, and replacing him with Italian Walter Zenga.
Needless to say, the Wolverhampton money available also saw a hike in Bodvarsson's wage demands that proved the final nail in any Rangers deal.
