QPR boss Warnock has support from owners

Neil Warnock has revealed that QPR owners Bernie Ecclestone and Flavio Briatore told him his job was not in danger amidst reports the club were looking for a replacement.

Not long after the London club gained promotion to the Premier League, Warnock's job was believed to be up for grabs as R's owners wanted to bring in a big name.

But Warnock has made it clear that he had always been backed by Ecclestone and Briatore to continue on in the same vein.

"Every manager is under pressure if they don't get results," Warnock told Sky Sports News.

"There have been one or two naughty things that have been brought out for whatever reason. Bernie Ecclestone and Flavio have told me right from day one, especially when Amit (Bhatia) left the board a couple of weeks ago, that they had no intention of bringing anyone else in.

"I am sure if I lost six or seven games, then there would be a few more (names) mentioned who were in (for) my position but that is the job we are in."

And Warnock said he was looking forward to continuing on with his winning ways in the top flight next term.

"I am enjoying every minute, and why shouldn't I?" he added.

"I won the Championship last year in probably the most difficult job I have ever done. In the space of 10 months I created a completely new team and it is great to have a Championship winner's medal."
