Queens Park Rangers sack Chris Ramsey, appoint Neil Warnock on interim basis

Queens Park Rangers sack Chris Ramsey and appoint former manager Neil Warnock as interim head coach, with the club 13th in the Championship table.

Championship outfit Queens Park Rangers have sacked head coach Chris Ramsey and appointed former manager Neil Warnock on an interim basis.

Ramsey replaced Harry Redknapp as head coach earlier this year, winning nine of his 32 matches in charge at Loftus Road.

The 53-year-old leaves the club sitting 13th in the Championship table with 19 points from their first 15 matches following QPR's relegation from the top flight in May.

On Ramsey's departure, QPR's director of football Les Ferdinand told the club's official website: "We've made this decision in the best interests of the football 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. However, keeping these players at the club has seen the mandate change, owing to what we believe this squad is capable of.

"We're all desperately disappointed it hasn't worked out with Chris. He has had to deal with this shift in expectation and has worked incredibly hard in doing so."

Interim head coach Warnock - who led the West London outfit to the Premier League in 2011 - returned to the club last month as a first-team advisor.

QPR will take on Preston North End in their next Championship fixture on Saturday.
