QPR appoint Chris Ramsey as manager until end of the season

Chris Ramsey has been given the vacant manger’s job at Queens Park Rangers until the end of the season after impressing since taking over from Harry Redknapp in a caretaker role last week. An official announcement is expected in the next 24 hours.

Ramsey  led the club to their first away points of the Premier League season on Tuesday night  with the 2-0 win at Sunderland, which was clearly a feather in his cap. However, the favourable impression that he has created runs deeper than one result, with the players having bought into his ideas on the training pitch and the team looking organised in matches.

QPR had been expected to appoint Tim Sherwood , who has been out of work since his departure from Tottenham Hotspur at the end of last season,  but the talks broke down . The chairman, Tony Fernandes, said on Tuesday that he was close to securing an alternative,  somebody he described as his “dream manager” . He added that it might “take a while”.

Paul Clement, the Real Madrid assistant manager, has been on Fernandes’s radar but he has said that his immediate focus is on finishing the season at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium. Clement has family ties to  QPR , with his father, Dave, having played for the club.

Michael Laudrup was also linked with the job  but ruled himself out of the running , having briefly been installed as the bookmakers’ favourite.
