Former Rangers boss set to be rewarded by current club after exit report rubbished

Former Rangers manager Mark Warburton is reportedly set to land a new deal at QPR after an initial report suggesting he would leave Loftus Road was rubbished.

Earlier this week, the Sun ran a story that claimed Warburton would take up the position of assistant technical director at the English FA.

However, the publication have since deleted the piece after QPR asserted that there was ‘absolutely no truth’ to the claims.

Somewhat ironically, the Sun are now reporting that he’s set to be offered a new contract as a reward for a strong season.

QPR are said to have one of the smallest budgets in the Championship but they sit eighth in the table only three matches from the end of their campaign.

The former Gers boss is reportedly set to receive a pay rise in recognition of his efforts.

He successfully returned the Gers to the Premiership in his first season but left Ibrox in controversial circumstances in February 2017, before joining Nottingham Forest just a month later.

He lasted less than a year at Forest but is thriving at QPR and it now looks as though his future does remain at Loftus Road after all.

Former Gers skipper Lee Wallace has played relatively regularly under Warburton this season, making 24 Championship appearances, scoring one goal and notching two assists.

In other news, an update has been provided on an Ibrox-bound player who hasn’t featured for his current club for over a month.
