- Ramsey leaves First Team role
- Ferdinand explains reasons for change
- Warnock to take temporary charge
CHRIS Ramsey has been relieved of his First Team duties at QPR with immediate effect.
Ramsey, 53, leaves his position as Head Coach following Tuesday night's 1-0 defeat to Derby County, a result which left the R’s in 13th place in the Sky Bet Championship.
Director of Football, Les Ferdinand, told www.qpr.co.uk: “We've made this decision in the best interests of the football club.
“It’s no secret that we expected to sell some key players in the summer transfer window, and as such, our target at the start of the season reflected that.
“However, keeping these players at the club has seen the mandate change, owing to what we believe this squad is capable of.
“We're all desperately disappointed it hasn't worked out with Chris. He has had to deal with this shift in expectation and has worked incredibly hard in doing so.”
The club will undergo an immediate recruitment process as the search gets underway for a new Head Coach.
In the interim period, Neil Warnock will take temporary charge of First Team affairs.
A further announcement will be made in due course.
