Warnock announces he will stay with QPR
Neil Warnock says he's been assured his job at QPR is safe.
Warnock, 62, was responding to rumours that the Loftus Road board were considering the appointment of a big-name manager, with Marcelo Lippi and Claudio Ranieri reported to have been among possible targets.
But in a statement on qpr.co.uk, former Sheffield United boss Warnock said: "I want to reiterate to our supporters that, having spoken to the board at QPR - Bernie Ecclestone, Flavio Briatore and Amit Bhatia - in the last few days, they have assured me that my future is not in any doubt whatsoever and they're looking forward to helping me acquire the players to make next season just as successful as the one we've just enjoyed.
"Hopefully all the speculation now will be put to bed once and for all and we can concentrate on what promises to be a memorable first season back in the Premier League for the club and our supporters."
