QPR boss Neil Warnock admits the club may want a more high profile manager when they take their place in the Premier League next season. Warnock is still locked into a contract with the capital club, but he accepts that owners Flavio Briatore and Bernie Ecclestone may decide to offer the post to a bigger name - with Marcello Lippi and Claudio Ranieri already linked with the role.

He said: "I'm not totally confident they will stick with me. It's one of those things.

"Hopefully my contract is watertight, and I'm sure my stock's not gone down.

"But I don't really want to leave London so I'll be disappointed if I don't get the opportunity."
