QPR boss Warnock: This season most rewarding of career

QPR boss Neil Warnock is proud of how he has guided the club to the Premier League on a shoestring budget.

Warnock insists talk of a massive transfer budget for the R's has always been wide of the mark.

"This has been the most rewarding season of my career by an absolute mile," Warnock told the London Evening Standard. "When I came here I was the fifth manager of that year [including caretakers]. But we have done it all in 14 months, which is remarkable.

"And we haven't spent a lot of money, we have done it in the right way.

"It has been phenomenal and everyone has come together as a result. I think it has been my hardest job, because so many ingredients have gone into the recipe. I don't think I could have done it four or five years ago.

"But I knew what we had in the dressing room and we had some quality players, too. To sign Adel [Taarabt, Warnock's captain] last summer was important, I thought Paddy Kenny was a super buy at £750,000 and Alejandro Faurlin will be one of the best midfielders in England next season. To see it all come to fruition is special."
