QPR caretaker boss Chris Ramsey has been given the manager's job at the Premier League club until the end of the season.

Ramsey, 52, had been in temporary charge at Loftus Road with director of football Les Ferdinand after Harry Redknapp quit to have knee surgery.

On Tuesday QPR chairman Tony Fernandes said he had got his "dream manager".

It is not clear if he was referring to Ramsey, or a potential permanent successor to Redknapp for next season.

Queen’s Park Rangers have reported a £9.8m loss for the year ending May 2014.

The loss represents a substantial improvement on the figures posted for the corresponding period last year where the west London club reported a loss of £65.4m.

QPR’s accounts show expenditure was reduced by £22m while shareholders have strengthened the club’s balance sheet by writing off £60m of shareholder loans.

A statement on QPR’s official website read: “QPR filed its accounts for the year ending May 2014 showing the club posted a loss for the year of £9.8m.

“Expenditure was reduced by £22m mainly driven by lower player costs and this trend will continue in future years as the club will continue to bring losses down. In addition the club’s shareholders reiterated their long term support for the club by strengthening the balance sheet by writing off £60m of shareholder loans.

“The club’s shareholders and directors are of the opinion that the club is moving in the right direction and on track with its mid-term and long-term business plans.

"The impact of relegation and promotion inevitably has a material impact on the short-term financial results of clubs but the shareholders are comfortable that the medium-term outlook is positive with Premier League revenues growing and the club’s costs continuing to fall.”


Getting rid of Redknapp should help them get a control on playing costs as he brings in a ridiculous number of players plus I think a few of the big earners from previous regimes contracts are coming to an end as well.

Staying in the Prem is vital for them because if they go down the football league is waiting with a huge fine for breaching their FFP rules which if they fail to agree to could see them sent down to the conference. I think that's a bit of an empty threat as it would open up a legal minefied for the Football League and it's rules but I think they'll be looking to cut a deal with QPR much like UEFA do with the clubs who breach FFP in the European Competition.

Very strange one as surely their visa's run in line with the football calendar.

Don't feel sorry for him at all he bought a club that had a squad that was a complete mess then hired a manager with a track record for making lots of expensive signings.

Until those ridiculous contracts they gave out come to an end club is going nowhere as no one will buy these guys off them as they're championship players not premiership.

The only ones who look good PL standard are Green, Fer & Austin the rest just aren't good enough and a few of them don't really appear to care.

Queens Park Rangers insist they will fight any attempt by the Football League to punish them for breaches of the Financial Fair Play rules.

QPR – whose relegation to the Championship was confirmed when they lost 6-0 to Manchester City on Sunday – filed accounts in March showing a loss of £9.8m during their last season in the Football League.

But that figure was reached by writing off loans of £60m, a move that might not be permitted under Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations.

The club could have a fine of £58m hanging over them if they are found guilty of breaches, but it is possible QPR could be kicked out of the Football League altogether if they don't pay up, and have to start life again in the Conference.

Football League FFP regulations were introduced in 2012 to “reduce the levels of losses being incurred at some clubs and, over time, establish a league of financially self-sustaining professional football clubs”.

There is some leeway regarding certain losses, such as investment in youth infrastructure, but even though QPR’s owners are willing to write off the loans, operating losses brought about by high wages mean they could still fall foul of FFP.

But QPR are challenging the legality of the Football League rules.

In a statement the club said: “Legal proceedings are ongoing between Queens Park Rangers and the Football League. QPR challenges the legality of the Football League’s Championship Financial Fair Play Rules and any charge against QPR (if any) for breach of FFP Rules shall not be commenced pending the outcome of that challenge.

“The proceedings are confidential in nature and neither party is entitled to comment upon the proceedings until the independent arbitral panel has delivered its decision.”

Financial mess?

Clubs that are still within the Football League that break FFP rules can be punished with various sanctions, including the deduction of points and transfer embargoes restricting further activity.

However, the only means with which to provide a deterrent for those clubs promoted outside of the Football League was to fine them.

There is no precedent for a club in QPR’s situation returning to the Championship and Football League chief executive Shaun Harvey has refused to rule out the prospect of QPR being kicked out of the professional game if they do not pay the fine.

Financial expert David Bick told Sky Sports News HQ: "This relates to the season before last when they eventually recorded losses of £65m and that included some £41m spent on player transfers – a horrendous loss at that level of football. And that is what will be the subject of Football League sanctions."

Asked of the sanctions could involve being kicked out of the Football League he said: "I think it could. If they challenge, or refuse to pay the fine they could be refused entry into the Football League... which means in theory they could end up in the Conference.

"That will clearly be part of the Football League's negotiations with them when it comes to applying the fine."

Bick says QPR stand to lose up to £150m in the first year out of the Premier League.

"Let's assume, let's say, a £50m fine. In the Championship they will have a parachute payment," he said. "But they'll immediately be hit by a loss of £65m, £66m from not being in the Premier League, from just the media rights.

"Add on to that a loss of season ticket sales, ticket prices will have to go down, merchandise sales will be lost, sponsorship income will be lost. Purely on the basis of my estimates, the loss in year one could be £130-150m. It's all cash. It's horrendous."


It's a tricky one as the last thing the league want to do is compromise on the first offender what QPR have done should carry the absolute maximum punishment but QPR were not setup for these FFP restrictions following their relegation from the PL as they had huge contracts with players who didn't have release clauses. What wont have helped is when they were relegated they still spent a decent amount of money that summer to buy in players also using their money to get good loans in. They basically ignored the rules and gambled everything on getting back up to the PL and staying their so the league couldn't come after them.

Well the first part of the plan worked but the second part has failed and now the club are in a pickle I think they might have to compromise and take a fine and some sort of points deduction because the football league has a legal right to refuse entry to a club that doesn't comply with their rules.

Joey Barton's QPR "bad eggs" have been revealed: they are Adel Taarabt, Eduardo Vargas, Mauricio Isla, Mauro Zarate and Armanad Traore.


What a surprise the foreign lads are the bad eggs.

Taarabt & Zarate are well known for having questionable attititudes so why the club took Zarate when they already had Taarabt who knows and if they're that bad why not just keep them out of the training ground/dressing room as they clearly weren't playing.

As for Traore they gave him a new contract last summer I believe. Who signed that off? He's an awful footballer.

There are plenty of British lads who need to look at themselves as well SWP has hung around at that club for 2 years because he's on a ridiculous contract, Joey Barton had that stupid sending off against Hull which could've cost them vital points, Clint Hill/Karl Heny for all their running about are not good enough footballers for the Premier League.

If you want the bad egg for me it was Redknapp he just kept adding to an already bloated squad his solution to solve a problem of to many players was add more players and when the owner decided enough was enough he jacked. The club needs a complete clear out this is root and branch change time.

The reports are they're going to give Ramsey the job which is good to hear he's a English coach so good to see him get a proper chance but they need to build a squad that is hungry to succeed with a few dedicate wise heads to guide them. To many people at that club don't seem to give a f*ck.

Queens Park Rangers will not be barred from the Championship despite being accused of breaching Football League regulations.

QPR are alleged to have spent more on salaries than rules allowed when they were in the division two seasons ago.

The London club have been relegated from the Premier League after just one season back in the top flight.

A Football League spokesman said that QPR would be "welcomed" into the Championship.

QPR revealed a £9.8m loss in March but £60m of loans were written off by owner Tony Fernandes and other shareholders.

If the Football League refuses to find the loans acceptable under its Financial Fair Play rules, QPR could be fined by up to £58m.

Football League Financial Fair Play
Championship clubs were permitted losses of £8m (£5m funded by shareholders) in 2013-14
Clubs promoted back to the Premier League who exceeded those losses are subject to a fine
There is a sliding scale on the next £10m of losses, with a maximum fine of £6.681m
Once losses exceed £18m, the fine is imposed on a strict pound-for-pound basis
Should there be an overall loss of £30m, the fine would be almost £19m. If it was £50m, the figure would be nearly £39m


Excluding QPR from the Championship was an option open to the league if the club refused to pay any fine that is eventually imposed.

The club have begun legal action questioning the validity of the rules but the matter may not be resolved before the new season starts on 8 August.

A Football League spokesman said the process is ongoing.

QPR have appointed Chris Ramsey as head coach on a three-year contract.

Ramsey, 53, was given the job until the end of the season in February after Harry Redknapp resigned but failed to prevent Premier League relegation.

"When Chris took over the role we were already in a very difficult position," said club chairman Tony Fernandes.

"Despite our relegation, we - as a board - have been impressed with the professionalism and attention to detail he has demonstrated."

QPR have won three of Ramsey's 14 games in charge and go into their final game of the season at Leicester bottom of the top flight on goal difference.

Fernandes added: "He lives and breathes management and coaching and I am sure he will flourish in this role as we look to bounce back from this season's disappointments.

"This is a new start for us and one I am confident Chris will relish playing a major part in."

The Loftus Road outfit's director of football Les Ferdinand believes the club need to focus on developing its youth players rather than spending heavily on new signings.

"I enjoyed my time in temporary charge, despite the way the season panned out, and now I'm looking forward to the challenge of helping rebuild this club over the coming years," said Ramsey.

"I am fully aware of what this club means to its supporters and I intend to do everything possible to help build a QPR team they can be proud of."

An announcement about Ramsey's backroom staff will be made in "due course".


Hope he does well good to see young British coaches getting a chance but he'll have a hell of a job on his hands to stop that club dropping another division.

Next season has to be about consolidation getting as many of those big earners as possible out and building a new younger squad that has the hunger and drive to make it to the PL.

The big problem for them will be goals with Austin likely to leave in the summer they will need someone to score goals in the league below their best bet might be to try and get a good kid on loan rather than buying one

So he was the dream signing they talked about.. Thought they had someone else lined up, for once the season was over.

Realistically who's going to take that job? The Brentford boss might be a good shout as he's going to be free in the summer but it would be a big gamble.

Ramsey is a close friend of Les Ferdinand who seems to be running the show there now from the football side of things so if they can try and put some long term plans in place the might actually start seeing the benefit of some of the big backing they have from Fernandes.

The amout of money that has been p*ssed away by that club over the last 5 years is almost comical and the people at the top need to take responsibility for that as they were the ones who gave the power to the wrong people.

No idea.. But I wouldn't have claimed he was the dream manager. Makes Fernandez look like an even bigger c*ck.

I thought he must've thrown a load of cash at some foreign manager who was good but vanished.

Defender Rio Ferdinand, 36, and 34-year-old midfielder Joey Barton are among six players who will be released by relegated QPR this summer.

Centre-back Richard Dunne, 35, winger Shaun Wright-Phillips, 33, striker Bobby Zamora, 34, and 32-year-old goalkeeper Brian Murphy will also go.

All six players are out of contract at Loftus Road on 30 June.

Defender Clint Hill, 36, and midfielder Alejandro Faurlin, 28, will both be offered new contracts by the club.

Midfielder Karl Henry, 32, has until 30 June to decide whether he wishes to take up the option of an extra year and remain with the club in the Championship next season.

QPR were relegated from the Premier League after just one season back in the top flight.

Adel Taarabt has left Queens Park Rangers and signed for Portuguese side Benfica after having his contract terminated by mutual consent.

The 26-year-old midfielder featured just eight times this season as the R's were relegated from the Premier League.

The Morocco international joined from Tottenham in 2009, initially on loan, and scored 34 goals in 164 appearances.

Taarabt has signed a five-year deal with Benfica, who won the Portuguese Primeira Liga last season.

He had two spells away from Loftus Road in 2013-14, spending time on loan with Fulham and Italian Serie A side AC Milan.

Taarabt was criticised by then-Rangers manager Harry Redknapp in October last year for being "about three stone overweight" but he played five times after Redknapp was replaced as boss by Chris Ramsey in February.

Charlie Austin has accused David Sullivan of making an “outrageous slur” after the West Ham United co-owner dismissed the prospect of signing him because of concerns over his long-term fitness.

Although West Ham hope to bolster their attacking options before the transfer window shuts, Sullivan ruled out meeting QPR’s asking price of £15m for the striker and alleged he has no ligaments in his right knee. He pointed out the 26-year-old failed a medical with Hull City two years ago and also questioned Austin’s quality, saying the player had a poor game when West Ham drew 0-0 with QPR in April.

Sullivan’s comments were poorly received by Austin, who hit out at “inaccurate, misleading and uninformed innuendo” in a statement, and there is a possibility he may take legal action.

“Firstly, we haven’t got £15m to spend under the fair play rules,” Sullivan said in an interview with the KUMB West Ham podcast. “Secondly, he failed a medical at Hull a couple of years ago. They say he has no ligaments in his knee, who knows? To sign a player for £15m is a big risk. He could go on for years but knowing our luck his knee will go in his first game and that’s the end of it.

“If we had £100m to spend we may say: ‘We’ll spend £15m and gamble one-sixth of our budget’. But it’s not one-sixth of our budget, it’d smash our budget to bits. And he didn’t keep Queens Park Rangers up. If he’d kept them up single-handedly you might say it was different – and a few of those goals were penalties. When we played Queens Park Rangers last year they had to win to stand any chance of staying up and he wasn’t very good.”

Diafra Sakho and Modibo Maïga are the only senior strikers West Ham have available for the visit of Bournemouth on Saturday. Mauro Zárate has been ruled out for two weeks after injuring a hamstring, Enner Valencia will not return until October at the earliest after he suffered a serious knee injury last month and Andy Carroll’s comeback from the knee problem that has kept him out since February has been put back by a week after a niggle in training on Thursday.

Carroll is expected to return to full fitness next month but his injury record since his £15m move from Liverpool two years ago has led to West Ham taking extra caution in the transfer market. They want to limit the risk factor with any big signings.

However Austin, who managed to score 18 goals for QPR despite their relegation from the Premier League last season, was not impressed with Sullivan. He has scored twice in his first three games for QPR in the Championship this season and has been linked with Newcastle United, Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham this summer. QPR are adamant they will accept nothing less than £15m for Austin, whose contract runs out next summer.

Austin issued a firm statement in defence of his injury record. “I feel I have no option but to address the inaccurate, misleading and uninformed innuendo about my physical condition that has been raised today by an individual who is not privy to my personal health history,” he said. “It is one of a number of inaccurate reports about my so-called injury problems which have been made over the summer.

“For the record, there is nothing wrong with my ligaments, as has been suggested. My strength and performance in pre-season has been excellent and with two goals in my last two games I don’t think there is any doubt that my match sharpness is as good as ever. I scored 18 goals in the Premier League last season, which would not be possible were I feeling discomfort or pain.

“Like many professional footballers, I have the legacy of injuries picked up over my career but the effect on my day-to-day training and on matchday is non-existent. For a senior figure to insinuate I could break down at any moment is an outrageous slur on my professionalism and the work that has gone into making me the footballer than I am today. I am fit, strong and looking forward to Saturday’s home game against Rotherham.”

Sullivan later attempted to take a step back from his initial observations. “I fully accept that day to day he is fine and that his recent form is fantastic,” he said. “The question is whether past injuries will impact on the longevity of his career. I hope Charlie plays on until he’s 37 or 38 as he’s a fantastic player who I admire.”

Les Ferdinand, QPR’s director of football, offered Austin his support. “His fitness has never been an issue for us and he has not missed a game for us over the last couple of years because of it,” he said. “They said Demba Ba had a dodgy knee. West Ham signed him and he didn’t miss a game for them. Loïc Rémy apparently had dodgy knees and yet he hasn’t done too badly has he?”

“If they don’t think Charlie would be a good fit for West Ham then that’s their prerogative. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. But to question his record or his fitness when he hasn’t missed a game for us over the last couple of years is a different matter.”

Former England international goalkeeper Rob Green has spoken of his anguish at being frozen out at Queens Park Rangers over a clause in his contract.

The 36-year-old has not featured in a QPR's match-day squad since New Year's Day because he would trigger an extension of his current two-year deal if he plays 30 Championship matches.

Green, who has been at Loftus Road since 2012, was initially viewed as a central figure in the club's push for immediate promotion back to the Premier League this season.

However, the club's disappointing form over the first half of the campaign led to the dismissal of manager Chris Ramsey in November with QPR 13th in the Championship table.

Ramsey's replacement, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, informed Green that his 25th appearance of the campaign - on January 1 - would be his last for the club.

"With the clause in my contract that if I played up to 30 games, I would trigger another year in my contract and the club decided that wouldn't happen," Green said, speaking exclusively on Sky Sports Now.

"They wanted to give promotion a run at the start of the season and wanted to keep me with a view to that. Come Christmas it was fairly evident that was going to be beyond our reach.

"It was a disappointing moment for the club because we had really given it a go.

"Then Charlie (Austin) left in January. That was another decision they had made that they wanted to keep him and try and do as much as they could.

"From that point on, I have not played a game. It has been a frustrating time - one that took me a little while to get my head around."

Both QPR and Green were keen for him to leave the club in January but despite interest from several clubs in signing him, including Crystal Palace and West Ham, he was unable to secure a move away.

"The decision was made in January with a view to me hopefully getting a move in January," Green added.

"There were a couple of things that came about but they never came to fruition, which again was disappointing.

"But that is football and that is the way of the world. It is difficult in January because everyone has got their goalkeepers. Unless someone has had a bad injury or something like that, no one needs a goalkeeper in January."

He added: "Having a small break from playing games has perhaps reinvigorated me for a new season," Green said. "I know I am going into a summer break but I am feeling ready to go and wanting to play games.

"It has been a frustrating time but one where I have managed to spend time away from football and found life outside of it for the first time in 36 years. It has been positive in other ways."


Surely some common sense should prevail here where a club/player can come to an agreement to alter the contract to allow him to continue playing without it triggering an extension? My guess is he's one of the players who didn't have a relegation wage cut clause in his deal when he signed so the club want him gone as he's a high earner.

My guess is the club were hoping having been told this Green would seak a move in January to get him off the books but he's obviously decided to stay put and collect his wages to the end of the season and go on a free.
