QPR ‘to improve bids’ for duo

Neil Warnock reflects on his recent sacking as QPR manager in his weekly column in The Independent.

“I just don’t fit in with the mould of a Premier League manager. I treat the club’s money as if it were my own and I resent paying over the odds,” he says.

Safe or not?

The Daily Star report that QPR are losing their battle to sign new players in time for Sunday’s game at Newcastle – and that new manager Mark Hughes has been told his job will be safe even if Rangers are relegated.

The Guardian, on the other hand, report that Hughes’ job will not be safe if Rangers go down.

The Daily Mail say QPR plan to table improved offers for Chelsea defender Alex and Tottenham midfielder Steven Pienaar after failing with their initial bids.

And a number of papers claim Hughes was furious about Martin Jol’s recent comments about him.
