Rating Chris Ramsey: How does he compare to QPR’s former managers

Chris Ramsey’s spell in charge of QPR has been a turbulent time.

Ramsey was appointed QPR boss until the end of the season following Harry Redknapp’s departure in February.

His main role is to see the club remain in the Premier League, and it is likely that any chance of him remaining in charge on a permanent basis will be based around their survival.

With four points separating the West London club from safety with eight games left, it is unlikely that they will stave off relegation to the Championship, but how does Ramsey stack up to some of his predecessors at Loftus Road.

Chris Ramsey - 4

Five games in charge have brought an incredible five losses, and Ramsey is only spared a lower rating due to being placed in this position due to the sudden departure of Redknapp. He has inherited a squad with little chance of fighting for survival, and if he does manage to keep them in the Premier League, he should be rewarded with a full-time job.

He has had little time to impress, but he has done little to impress in that time.

Harry Redknapp - 6

Relegation to the Championship marred his first season in charge, but he bounced the club back to the Premier League at the first attempt by defeating Derby in the play-off final. He left the club in February with little chance of them remaining in the Premier League.

While one of the few managers on this list to have won an honour with the R’s, he did so in the Championship, by securing promotion through the play-offs with a squad far more talented than many of the others in that division. He did the least possible to succeed, and it is no surprise that he left the club.

Mark Hughes - 5

Managed to help QPR remain in the Premier League in his debut half-season in charge, but took in just 32 games in total after suffering a dreadful start to the 2012/13 campaign.

Oversaw a number of high-profile signings that did not work out, but he is given the benefit of the doubt for being given so little time in which to turn things around.

Neil Warnock - 8

The highest rated manager on this list, Warnock led QPR to promotion from the Championship as champions in 2011, and secured their first return to the top flight in 15 years.

After enjoying a strong start to the season, the R’s had dropped down to 17th in January and Warnock was dismissed at the beginning of 2012. An unfair sacking having had such great success the previous season and, in recent history, Warnock has been QPR’s best manager.
