Mark Warburton sends message to fans after Queens Park Rangers exit confirmed

Former Rangers boss Mark Warburton has taken to Twitter to give a “very sincere thank you” to QPR fans after it was confirmed he will leave the Rs at the end of the season.

Warburton’s contract is up after the final game of the season and the Championship side confirmed that they won’t be renewing it, leaving the former Ibrox boss looking for his third club since leaving the Gers.

After a flood of messages on social media from QPR fans, Warburton took time to send thanks on Twitter, saying: A very sincere thank you to the many QPR fans who have sent such positive messages.

“Today is match day and the focus is absolutely on the team and the delivery of a good performance for the final home game of the Season. However, as always, a very genuine thank you!”

Warburton has been QPR boss since 2019 and has a signed a number of ex-Gers during his time there, including Lee Wallace, Liam Kelly and Dom Ball.

His first season in charge saw the R’s finish 15th in the Championship, before a ninth-placed finish last season.

With two games to go, QPR find themselves in tenth position in the Championship, well outside the playoff places having been challenging earlier in the campaign.

QPR Director of Football Les Ferdinand said: “This decision has been a very difficult one to make and I reiterate Lee and Amit’s thanks and appreciation to Mark for his dedication during his time with us.

Mark Warburton’s exit at QPR a surprise after continued improvements

While Warburton’s departure from Ibrox still leaves a bitter taste for some, his exit at QPR comes as a bit of a surprise.

Despite seeing their promotion push falter, the R’s have consistently improved under Warburton and are edging closer to a Premier League return.

Whoever replaces the former Rangers boss will do well to continue the improvements made under Warburton and push QPR toward their holy grail.
