Ex-Fulham defender Hangeland: Babel a transfer success

Former Fulham defender Brede Hangeland says Ryan Babel's January arrival has been a success.

After victory over Everton, Hangeland wrote for fulhamfc.com: "Ryan Babel's contribution was absolutely first class. He engineered both goals and demonstrated frightening pace and a great attitude.

"Personally I am too old-school to understand red hair in relegation fights, but there is no question that Babel has made an impact and provided much needed quality and cutting edge.

"Last Saturday was a welcome chapter in the story of our season, but the fact remains we are relegated, and the narrative has been a disappointment and a surprise. This season has been a tough lesson for all fans of this football club and I am convinced the people upstairs will reflect, learn and adjust accordingly."
