Warnock stays as QPR boss

Bernie Ecclestone has confirmed Neil Warnock will lead QPR into the Premier League next season.

The likes of Marcello Lippi, Claudio Ranieri, Giovanni Trapattoni and Martin Jol have all been linked with the Rangers job even though Warnock is the man in position, having just secured promotion by winning the Championship title.

Majority shareholder Ecclestone, however, has made it clear Warnock is not going anywhere. He: "He's staying - 100%. We've never discussed anything about him leaving. He's never wanted to leave and we don't want to get rid of him.

"He's absolutely taking the club into the Premier League.''

Ecclestone has also dismissed suggestions of a potential takeover of the club by another shareholder, Indian billionaire Lakshmi Mittal. It has been claimed Mittal will launch a bid for the club on Monday, but Ecclestone says he is unaware of any likely approach.

Formula One supremo Ecclestone likened it to rumours surrounding a takeover of the motor sport by Rupert Murdoch. Ecclestone added: "Mittal put a statement out to say he was going to buy all the shares on Monday. But it's a bit like these Murdoch people saying they're going to buy CVC (F1's commercial rights holders). They have forgotten to ask if it's for sale.''
