Queens Park Rangers defender Peter Ramage feels he has a 'point to prove' after signing a new one-year contract.

Ramage missed most of last season due to a knee injury, but returned to feature in QPR's final two matches of their promotion campaign.

The former Newcastle United man has now agreed to stay at Loftus Road and is looking forward to playing in the Premier League again next season.

"I always wanted to stay here and the gaffer made it clear from the day I got injured that he'd give me a chance, so now it's up to me to repay the faith he's shown in me," Ramage told the club's official website.
