FEW would have expected QPR to maintain their push for the Premier League so strong for so long but there seems little chance their march to the title will be halted.

Neil Warnock has proved inspirational leader to a strong squad of Championship-level talent, turning underachievers into success stories.

Star player Adel Taarabt praises Warnock for putting him on the right path, and he has done the same with Rangers also, losing just three games on the road.


FEW managers draw as much controversy and bile from supporters and peers as Neil Warnock. But it is hard to argue he has been one of the most successful in the Football League’s recent history.

While Rangers have been blessed with strong finances for several years now, no manager has been able to craft a winning formula from that until now.

Should Rangers go up, former Rotherham and Barnsley winger Warnock will have the distinction of taking three different clubs into the top flight after promotions with Notts County and Sheffield United.
