NEIL Warnock is looking forward to the future after the arrival of Tony Fernandes and the re-emergence of Amit Bhatia

The R’s boss has laboured somewhat in the summer transfer market, being limited to the purchase of DJ Campbell from Blackpool.

Alongside this he has scoured the market for predominantly free transfers and potential loan signings. Fernandes’ pledge to invest in his manager has Warnock licking his lips at the prospect of the remaining days in the window.

He told QPR.co.uk of his evident excitement over the arrival of the Malaysian businessman.

‘It’s a momentous day.

‘To get Tony on board and listen to his ideas and plans for the Club is exciting – not just for the First Team but for the whole Club.

‘I think everyone connected with QPR should be excited about the whole prospect.

‘The Club needs the stability and expertise that Tony has got to take it to the next step.

‘We’ve got to the Promised Land and we want to stay there and build a Club for the future – that doesn’t happen overnight.

‘We have to put bricks in place to build that foundation – everything about today is positive.’


Warnock explained that Amit Bhatia’s return to the club has rekindled his passion for cause, reminding him of the day the pair met.

He explained: ‘Everybody knows why I came here – Amit was instrumental in me doing so.

‘I’m as excited today as I was when I came and shook Amit’s hand to take the job last year.


Rangers will now hope to kick-start their campaign against Everton this weekend in what will be the Toffees’ first fixture of the campaign.
