QPR boss Warnock emotional after winning latest promotion

QPR boss Neil Warnock was emotional after being crowned - and confirmed - as champions of the Championship.

QPR got their hands on the npower Championship trophy, a week after they clinched it, following the Football Association's announcement that they would not be docked points over the Alejandro Faurlin affair.

The club were instead fined £875,000 after being found guilty of two of the seven charges facing them surrounding the alleged third-party ownership of the Argentine midfielder.

After defeat to Leeds United, Warnock said: "Over the last seven weeks or eight weeks I have never had such a tough task, so to steer us through is the best job I've done.

"To deal with it without being able to comment has been difficult, especially for me! A lot of the lads, myself included, were in tears in the dressing room when we heard.

"Everyone, one by one, went up to Alejandro and hugged him. It was great."
