In these unprecedented times, there has understandably been very little heard from individual footballers and coaches.
This is obviously for a number of reasons. Firstly, fans don’t like to hear it, but there are more important things than football. And secondly, the way everyone has been stuck at home means that there are no necessary press events or interviews that have to be done.
Nevertheless, QPR boss Mark Warburton has found a way to show his face – by a live-streamed interview online with the head of media at the club Paul Morrissey.
Within the interview, the pair discuss the best way in which the seasons should be concluded.
Warburton was very clear on his standpoint: he believes that the season must be completed before we move onto the next. He claimed that fans will be understanding of the current situation, but for the integrity of football, the campaign had to be finished.
You can watch the interview in full via this link.
Many Rangers fans were delighted to see their head coach speaking, and many complimented the manager for the way he approaches himself and for how he’s coached the team this season.
A few others not particularly amused by the framed shirt in the background, which was a Glasgow Rangers top from his time in Scotland.
Here are a few responses below…
Very cultured astute man, quite possibly @MarkWarburton9 is the best signing @QPR has made in many a season.
Being a player in the current R’s squad, it must be a pleasure to play under his leadership…
… quality top draw manager 👍#HealthIsWealth 👊

Loads of sense. Also play the season ’til the fate of each team is sorted. Can’ t go up down or get into Europe season over unless a team you have to play is still in contention. One leg playoffs. Then 2-4 week break b4 next season starts.
