Massimo Luongo on the big changes in Queens Park Rangers training after Chris Ramsey's exit

Chris Ramsey was sacked as Queens Park Rangers boss last week.

Queens Park Rangers midfielder Massimo Luongo has told the Sydney Morning Herald that training improved immediately after Chris Ramsey’s departure.

Ramsey was dismissed as QPR boss last week, after a defeat to Derby County left the team in 13th place in the Championship table.

The R’s placed Neil Warnock in temporary charge, and Luongo says that big changes were made under a new coaching regime.

"The next session is a lot more lively because guys are trying to impress and smash people trying to get their positions," Luongo said.

"Chris Ramsey had a lot of different styles in the way he coached because he was really involved in everything.

"It was a big change, the next session, we had a lot of shape in the next game."

Ramsey fell under pressure at QPR after their poor start to the campaign left them trailing the play-off pack by a considerable distance.

The R’s have made no secret of their desire to mount a promotion push, but they have ground to make up if they are to get into the top-six now.

Warnock’s first match in charge saw QPR draw 0-0 with Preston North End, and the club are still looking at managerial targets to take over on a permanent basis.

Paul Lambert and Tim Sherwood have both been touted as potential candidates by The Telegraph, while Warnock has not ruled himself out of the running.
