Chris Ramsey named QPR manager until end of Premier League season

Thursday February 12th, 2015

Queens Park Rangers head of player development Chris Ramsey, who has been serving as interim manager, has been named the club's manager until the end of the season, reports Sky Sports.

QPR was reportedly targeting former Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood for the opening, but talks broke down late over personal terms.

The job opened when Harry Redknapp resigned from the Premier League club last week due to imminent knee surgery. 

On Tuesday, Ramsey led QPR to its first away win of the season, a 2-0 victory over Sunderland. QPR currently sits in 17th place in the Premier League table, just above the relegation line. 

After Tuesday's win, Ramsey expressed his interest in leading the team beyond the end of the season. 

"If the job's available and I’m the right man for the job, then I’ll do it. If not, I’ll stay as an employee - head of player development - for the club and continue to support the cause."
