Warnock dismissed by Queens Park Rangers

Queens Park Rangers FC have parted company with manager Neil Warnock following a run of eight Premier League matches without a win and just four victories all season.

Queens Park Rangers FC have sacked manager Neil Warnock after a run of eight Premier League games without a win, a sequence of results which has left the west London club a point above the relegation zone.

In addition to Warnock, assistant manager Mick Jones and first team coach Keith Curle have also left Loftus Road. Warnock, 63, took charge in March 2010 and guided the Hoops back into the top flight for the first time in 15 years during his sole full season in charge.

However, he has paid the price for winning just four games all term, while on Saturday only a late equaliser from Heidar Helguson prevented QPR from being knocked out of the FA Cup by third-tier MK Dons FC. A statement on the QPR website said: "The board's commitment to retaining our Premier League status ultimately led to this decision."

Tony Fernandes, the QPR chairman, added: "Sadly, our recent run of poor form has seen us slip alarmingly down the table and the board felt it was the right time to make a change."
