QPR manager Neil Warnock has heaped praise on goalkeeper Radek Cerny.

The 37-year old Czech gloveman was impressive in his first Premier League outing when the R's lost 1-0 to Liverpool last week prompting adulation from his boss who has seen him remain patient behind Paddy Kenny in recent times.

"I am really pleased for him. Like Heidar Helguson, I fought hard to get him a new contract with the previous owners," Warnock said.

"He is such a credit to his profession. I don't think it is any coincidence that Paddy Kenny has thrived training with him.

"He is loving every minute of it. Nothing fazes him. I asked him he was nervous at Anfield. He said: 'No'. I said: 'I am, I am so-and-soing myself!'

"He takes it all in his stride."
