Neil Warnock on why managers won't be rushing to take Queens Park Rangers job

Queens Park Rangers have placed Neil Warnock in temporary charge following the dismissal of Chris Ramsey last week.

Neil Warnock has told the Daily Mail that he feels there won’t be many managers rushing to take the Queens Park Rangers job, due to the side’s upcoming fixtures.

The R’s return to action after the international break with a testing set of matches – against some of the Championship’s form teams.

QPR take on Middlesbrough first up, before games against Leeds United, Reading, Burnley and Brighton & Hove Albion lie in wait.

And Warnock said: "When you look at the fixtures coming up, I don't think anyone will be rushing in to take over for those! We've got to embrace it and give it our best shot."

Warnock has taken temporary charge at QPR following the sacking of Chris Ramsey last week, and he will be hoping to guide them up the table.

The R’s are determined to be promoted, but at the moment they are languishing in a mid-table spot after enduring a poor start to the 2015/16 campaign.

QPR are already eight points adrift of the play-off spots, meaning that whoever does land the job on a permanent basis will be under pressure to hit the ground running, despite the challenging fixture list.

The Birmingham Mail claim that QPR’s first choice to land the job is Paul Lambert, while Warnock has ruled himself out of taking the role at Loftus Road on talkSPORT earlier today.
