Robert Green gives insight into what Neil Warnock has been encouraging at Queens Park Rangers

Queens Park Rangers have placed Neil Warnock in temporary charge of the first team.

Robert Green has told Queens Park Rangers’ official website that Neil Warnock has been encouraging the attacking players at Loftus Road to feel free to express themselves.

Warnock has been placed in temporary charge as QPR look to find a permanent replacement for their former manager Chris Ramsey, who was sacked last week.

The Englishman has set about making changes during his brief time at the helm, and he has been keen to try and work on the team’s attacking threat.

“He wants the players to go out and express themselves, particularly the attacking ones,” Green, 35, explained.

“If you don’t know what Neil Warnock is about, you haven’t been watching football for the last 20 or 30 years!

"Wherever he has gone, he has always got the best out of his players, and got them working together as a team.”

Despite Warnock’s insistence that QPR’s forward players were free to try the extravagant under his stewardship, he was unable to increase their goal threat against Preston North End in his first match in the dugout.

QPR drew a blank against Preston, and ended up playing out a goalless draw against Simon Grayson’s resilient team.

Warnock may feel that was a missed opportunity, as he could be one of the leading candidates to land the QPR job on a permanent basis.

The Rs are drawing up plans to replace Ramsey, and if Warnock can impress while on temporary charge, there is bound to be a growing clamour for him to be handed the job on a more long-term basis.
