QPR give Chris Ramsey permanent role

JUST THE JOB: Chris Ramsey

DESPITE RELEGATION to the Championship, Queens Park Rangers have announced the permanent appointment of Chris Ramsey as head coach on a three-year contract.

Ramsey, 53, took temporary charge of Rangers in February in the wake of Harry Redknapp's resignation, but he could not prevent their exit from the Premier League.

The Loftus Road hierarchy have been pleased with Ramsey's approach since taking the reins and have decided to retain him on a deal until the end of the 2018 season.

Chairman Tony Fernandes said on the club's official website: "When Chris took over the role we were already in a very difficult position, yet despite our relegation, we -- as a board -- have been impressed with the professionalism and attention to detail he has demonstrated since becoming head coach.

"He lives and breathes management and coaching, and I am sure he will flourish in this role, as we look to bounce back from this season's disappointments. This is a new start for us and one I am confident Chris will relish playing a major part in."

Ramsey added: "This is a fantastic opportunity for me and one I am tremendously excited about. I enjoyed my time in temporary charge, despite the way the season panned out, and now I'm looking forward to the challenge of helping rebuild this club over the coming years.

"I am fully aware of what this club means to its supporters and I intend to do everything possible to help build a QPR team they can be proud of."
