The club’s statement read: “QPR would like to confirm there’s absolutely no truth in reports suggesting Mark Warburton is considering leaving the club to take up the role as assistant technical director at the FA.”

Warburton said: “I don’t know where this has come from. There isn’t a grain of truth in it.

“I’m completely committed to QPR and am focused on the job in hand.”
