QPR defender Ryan Nelsen, formerly at Spurs, will play in Saturday's Premier League clash with Tottenham at Loftus Road.
Nelsen has agreed to manage Major League Soccer side Toronto FC but a date has yet to be set for his departure, with manager Harry Redknapp hoping he stays until the end of the season.
Striker Junior Hoilett (hamstring) and midfielder Samba Diakité (African Nations Cup) are unavailable, while forwards Andrew Johnson (knee) and Bobby Zamora (hip) have long-term injuries.
Meanwhile, Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas has no fresh injury concerns ahead of Tottenham's London derby at QPR tomorrow.
Defenders William Gallas and Younes Kaboul are the only players unavailable to the Portuguese.
Togo striker Emmanuel Adebayor will play his last game for the club before departing to the Africa Cup of Nations.
Harry Redknapp will have searched for this fixture the day he joined Rangers.
He left Spurs in the summer and many of the players in opposition were his signings, so the visitors will hope that familiarity does not breed contempt.
Rangers will be boosted by their last league outing, the 1-0 win at Chelsea, but Spurs arrive on the back of four wins, most recently the FA Cup saunter against Coventry.
