Adel Taarabt has praised QPR fans for giving him a warm reception on the weekend.
The Moroccan playmaker made his first start at Loftus Road in about 24 months in the 1-0 loss to Southampton and was grateful to the supporters after being handed a rare opportunity by caretaker boss Chris Ramsey.
"It has been a long time since I started a game at Loftus Road - almost two years," he told the club's official website.
"I was happy to be back out there and for the supporters to welcome me like they did was special, I really appreciate this from them."
Taarabt, who had some problems under former boss Harry Redknapp, added: "It meant a lot to me, a lot.
"Obviously it has been a difficult four months and some fans may have thought I do not love this club, but this is not true.
"I know what this club has given to me. I have been here for a long time and it was QPR who gave me the chance to show myself, and what I can do. I cannot forget this."
