Former Rangers manager wins monthly award after outstanding run

Former Rangers boss Mark Warburton has won the English Championship Manager of the Month award for November with his QPR side currently occupying fifth place in the table.

Warburton has enjoyed a remarkable turnaround over the previous year as QPR were sitting in 19th position last December after winning only four games all season and fearing their stay in the Championship would be over.

He has led his side on an excellent run of form, losing only once in their previous seven Championship matches and they can dream of a return to the Premier League after a seven-year absence.

QPR play Sheffield Utd tomorrow and a win would further boost the London-based side’s promotion hopes.

Rangers fans will remember the Englishman for his brief stint in charge of the club where he led us to promotion back to the top flight.

That campaign featured one of the few highlights from our time in the lower divisions as we defeated Celtic on penalties in the 2016 Scottish Cup semi-final, although we were defeated in the final by Hibs in what was a major disappointment.

His reign ended in February 2017 after a poor run of results left us trailing Celtic in the league and sitting third in the table, in what some fans thought was our chance to reclaim the trophy from our rivals following promotion.

After a poor spell in charge of Nottingham Forest, the 59-year-old seems to have finally found his feet again in charge of QPR.

If his side keeps up their excellent run of form, then they could well find themselves amongst the Premier League elite next season.

In other news, another former Rangers manager has been in the news as his return to Anfield didn’t go to plan.
