Former Rangers boss has Championship club in with a shout for £180m Premier League jackpot

Former Rangers boss Mark Warburton is having a fantastic season managing Queens Park Rangers in the Championship, with the side sitting fourth and in with a great chance of reaching the promised land of the Premier League.

QPR defeated Luton 2-1 after responding well to a Cameron Jerome goal, equalising through Andre Gray and Robert Dickie scoring with seven minutes left to claim a vital three points in the promotion hunt.

Warburton has been working wonders this season following a tough start to his spell in London, with Premier League football a possibility for the first time since 2015.

Former Rangers manager Mark Warburton is leading Premier League charge with QPR

The Englishman joined QPR in May 2019, almost three and a half years from his acrimonious departure from the Ibrox side.

The 59-year-olds first season in charge saw the Gers achieve promotion back to the top flight, win the Challenge Cup and come all so close to ending our Scottish Cup drought.

The transition from Championship to the Premiership was tougher than he anticipated, and the club struggled. Events in February 2017 saw him, and David Weir leave their posts in controversial circumstances.

A tough spell at Nottingham Forest ended in December 2017 but he has managed to redeem himself with this excellent spell at QPR.

Although form has been a bit patchy recently, they occupy the fourth spot on 59 points and technically still have a faint chance of automatic promotion.

The playoffs are more realistic, and it would make for an incredible success story if Warburton could guide the club into the Premier League and realise his ambition of managing in the English top flight.

Meanwhile, Rangers have been handed a major injury boost following the Scottish Cup tie against Dundee.
