Chris Ramsey has insisted he wanted to bring Neil Warnock back to QPR.
Former R’s boss Warnock has returned in an advisory capacity – a role he has coveted for some time.
Head coach Ramsey has been under fire from fans after a troubled start to the season but says he was keen to bring in an experienced man alongside him and that Warnock was his choice.
“If it wasn’t welcome I don’t think I’d be here now,” Ramsey said.
“It’s something the club wanted to do and I’ve brought him in. I chose him.
“It was something that was an important step at this stage. Hopefully he can help us.”
Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Birmingham left Ramsey’s side 12th in the Championship table.
They have conceded 22 league goals this season – more than any other team in the division.
