Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has today been confirmed as QPR’s new manager.

Hasselbaink has been confirmed as QPR’s new manager, the official club website reports.

The 43-year-old Dutchman links up with the R’s as the replacement for Chris Ramsey, who was sacked last month.

Neil Warnock also leaves his job as interim manager, signing off with the 1-0 victory at Reading last night.

The former Chelsea and Leeds striker arrives at Loftus Road after an extremely successful spell in charge of Burton Albion.

In just his second managerial job - after a mediocre spell with Belgian club Royal Antwerp - Hasselbaink led Burton to the League Two title after arriving in November last year.

He leaves the side top of the table in League One, with 33 wins in just 54 games, to hold an exceptional win percentage of 61.11%

Hasselbaink arrives at QPR wth the West London club sitting in 11th place in the Championship table, on 26 points from 19 games. They are just two points off the final play-off spot, and if the boss keeps up the same form he was showing at Burton, the Rs will face no trouble in getting back to the Premier League.
