Speaking to talkSPORT, Neil Warnock has discussed the possibility of Chris Ramsey returning to QPR, after a Standard report claimed that the ex-manager was in talks over taking a coaching role at Loftus Road.
Warnock said: “Chris is a great man and a very good coach. I spoke to Chris this week, and I think if I had been with him at the start of the season it would have been a bit different. He needed an older head, it’s been very difficult for him. If they did that [QPR bring him back] it would be very beneficial for the club. Whether Jimmy [Floyd Hasselbaink] would want that is another thing.”
The report claims that Ramsey has been holding talks with QPR chiefs in recent days concerning a potential return as a coach, to work under likely appointment Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.
Ramsey was dismissed as head coach earlier this season, but he remains on good terms with both chairman Tony Fernandes and director of football Les Ferdinand. They appreciate his skills as a coach, and believe that the QPR staff would benefit from him being back at Loftus Road.
Warnock, who has been taking interim charge of the club since Ramsey’s exit, certainly agrees with this view, although he has questioned whether Hasselbaink would want Ramsey in his coaching staff, or if he would prefer to bring his own men in from Burton Albion.
Ramsey has a good reputation in English football, and he would be a welcome addition to many coaching staffs in the coming months.
Clearly QPR want to make sure they get him rather than any other team, and it would be no surprise to see Ramsey return to the Loftus Road set-up in the coming days.
