Bothroyd following son's footsteps in signing for QPR

Jay Bothroyd has revealed he's actually following in his son's footsteps with his move to QPR.

The England striker signed for the Hoops just a few weeks after his eight-year-old son Mace was snapped up by the West London club.

He said: "He joined the Academy shortly before I came to the club.

"He was really pleased when I signed for QPR as well.

"He's enjoying his football and learning fast. He came up to me last week and said he wanted a goal bonus. So I agreed to give him £1 for every goal he scored.

"Then he went out the following week and scored a hat-trick!"
