​QPR appoint Warburton as new boss

Former Rangers manager Mark Warburton has been named as QPR's new boss, succeeding ex-England coach Steve McClaren at the Championship club.

The 56-year-old has signed a two-year deal at Loftus Road.

"QPR have a long-term outlook and I am excited about the challenge that lies ahead," he told the club website.

"They have a solid plan and know what they want."

QPR director of football Les Ferdinand said Warburton was a "fantastic appointment" for the west London club.

"We spoke with a number of excellent candidates for the position, and Mark ticked all the boxes for us," added Ferdinand.

"He loves working with younger players and developing them, and has a great understanding of the game.

"Mark is determined to be a success and we will be giving him our full support to achieve that."
