WARNOCK WARMS QPR SEAT AFTER RAMSEY PAYS PRICE
IT COULD turn into a battle of the former bosses for the QPR job after Chris Ramsey’s sacking in midweek.
Ramsey, 53, left his position as head coach following Tuesday’s 1-0 defeat at Derby County, which left the R’s 13th in the Championship.
Ex-QPR manager Neil Warnock, who had returned to the club as an advisor last month, has been appointed interim head coach.
The 66-year-old has insisted his role is to ‘steady the ship’ while the club look for a permanent appointment, but good results could yet make a case for him to be given the job permanently.
Another former Hoops boss, Ian Holloway, 52, could also be in the running. He is available after being sacked by Millwall in March.
Meanwhile, director of football Les Ferdinand said he was ‘desperately disappointed’ Ramsey couldn’t bring success to the club.
“It’s no secret that we expected to sell some key players in the summer transfer window and, as such, our target at the start of the season reflected that,” he said.“However, keeping these players at the club has seen the mandate change, owing to what we believe this squad is capable of.
“Chris has had to deal with this shift in expectation and has worked incredibly hard in doing so.”
