Striker Kevin Gallen was the QPR hero on his return to Loftus Road as he scored one and had a hand in two others as Rangers thrashed Swindon.

Gallen re-signed for Rangers on a free transfer on Monday and he took just three minutes to make an impression as his clever flick put Doudou away and he slotted home.

On eight minutes Rangers made it two and Gallen was at the heart of it again.

He crossed to Steve Palmer to shoot and though Robins keeper Bart Griemink made a brilliant save, he couldn't prevent Oliver Burgess scoring from the rebound.

The game was all over before half time as on 36 minutes Gallen grabbed a debut goal.

He beat Andy Gurney before storming into the box and firing into the corner.

Swindon had most of the possession in the second half but it was QPR who had the last word when in injury time Karl Connolly put away Andy Thomson and he rounded the keeper before slotting in the fourth.


QPR: Digby, Forbes, Rose, Shittu, Palmer, Warren, Burgess, Bonnot, Connolly, Gallen, Dodou. Subs: Bruce, Bignot, Paquette, Thomson, Evans.

Swindon: Griemink, Mark Robinson, Heywood, Gurney, Ruddock, Steve Robinson, Duke, Hewlett, Carlisle, Sabin, Invincible. Subs: Willis, Osei-Kuffour, Grazioli, McKinney, McAreavey.

Referee: R Olivier (Sutton Coldfield).
