Bradley Orr believes Rangers will reap the rewards of the news that Adel Taarabt is staying at the Club.

The R's skipper made his first bow of pre-season in our 1-0 defeat to Cesena on Wednesday night and Orr is relishing the chance to play alongside the mercurial Moroccan in the top-flight when the season kicks off in mid-August.
"Adel is super-talented and it was good to see him back out there," Orr told
"He's our captain and our
talisman and he makes things happen.
"He can turn a game on the drop of a hat, so it's positive that he's staying."
Orr added: "No-one really knew what Adel's situation was over the summer.
"We didn't know whether he'd stay or go, but like I say, withAdel Taarabt on the pitch, we're always going to create chances and that can only be a positive for Queens Park Rangers Football Club."
Orr admits he is counting down the days now to the start of the Barclays Premier League season and can't wait for August 13th to come around.
"I'm feeling good and so are the rest of the lads," he said.
"There's improvements to be made, like there always is in pre-season, but as a group we're really looking forward to the start of the season.
"It's something to savour for us all and we can't wait now - we're counting down the days."
Orr believes team-spirit will be a crucial ingredient for the R's on their return to the top table of English football for the first time in 15 years, adding: "We've got such a good dressing room that whoever is here and whoever the Manager adds to the squad, they'll be welcomed on board and we'll make them feel at home.
"Team spirit was massive last year.
"We've got men in this dressing that would die for each other.
"There's winners in this dressing room and when you know you can look a team-mate in the eye and see he's given everything for the cause, that makes for a really positive spirit.
"That will be a massive factor for us over the course of the season."
