Angel Rangel was the unlikely hero as Steve McClaren's QPR drew 2-2 at Stoke City on Saturday afternoon.

The Spanish right-back scored both goals for the visitors as the two sides shared the spoils.

Rangel opened the scoring when he superbly headed home a delightful cross from Eberechi Eze.

Stoke battled back and retook the lead through goals from Saido Berahino and Joe Allen.

But, Rangel would pop up once again for the visitors, netting with 12 minutes remaining.

That was the Spaniard's 18th and 19th goals in his 15 seasons as a professional footballer.

You would have expected Steve McClaren to have been delighted when Rangel broke the deadlock after just seven minutes.

However, that doesn't appear to be the case.

A football fan noticed McClaren's reaction and the video is now doing the rounds on social media.

With the camera cutting to the former England boss, McClaren can be clearly seen saying: “F****** hell what’s he doing that far up?”

He also wore an angry expression as he was saying those words.

Bizarre. You would think that his team had just conceded rather than scored.

Rangel is currently on a short term contract with the London side and McClaren said after the game that he wants him to stay.

"We’ve got a stipulation where we can keep him," he said, per "He’s got that option, Angel, and it’s whether he wants to stay with us or not.

"But I think he’s been nothing short of a revelation, not just on the field but he’s been a great lad off the field."

And he also explained his reaction after the game, saying that he told Rangel to stay on the half-way line.

"I’ve got to say I don’t know why he was in the box and heading the ball in from there, we told him to stay on the halfway line!

"And the second goal was a cracker, a great team goal. As long as we score it doesn’t matter who gets them."
