Neil Warnock branded Julian Speroni the best goalkeeper in the country after the Argentinian ensured Crystal Palace came away with a 1-1 draw from the London derby at QPR.

Speroni pulled off stunning second-half saves from Alejandro Faurlin's drive and Akos Buzsaky's free-kick, and topped the lot with a world-class stop to keep out a late volley from Rangers substitute Rowan Vine.

"He's the best keeper in this division by a mile, and I don't see anyone better in the Premier League," said Eagles manager Warnock.

"Thank goodness nobody rates him or we'd have to sell him. But he's not leaving this club while I'm manager - unless I leave and take him with me."

Akos Buzsaky sent Speroni the wrong way with a penalty for Rangers but Darren Ambrose's spot-kick secured a point.
