Ramsey handed QPR job

Ramsey has been handed a three-year deal after QPR decided he is the right man to spearhead the club???s bid to return to the top flight.

The 53-year-old initially took charge on an interim basis in February following Harry Redknapp???s shock decision to quit a day after the January transfer window closed.

Ramsey has since guided the club to three wins and two draws in 14 matches, but a 6-0 thrashing by Manchester City on May 10 condemned QPR to Championship football next season.

Mark Warburton was also in the running for the post but it is understood the former Brentford boss wanted to be employed as a manager rather than head coach.??

Ramsey spoke of his delight at being handed the role on a permanent basis on QPR’s website.

“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.???

Chairman Tony Fernandes believes Ramsey is the right man to take the club forward.

???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.???
