Palace believe QPR's Warnock claims are premature

Published Add your comment

Crystal Palace have claimed QPR's confirmation that Neil Warnock has been appointed as manager at Loftus Road is "premature".

Palace confirmed Warnock's departure after two and a half years as manager on Monday night, shortly before Rangers announced the 61-year-old's appointment.

However, Brendan Guilfoyle, the administrator at Selhurst Park, said: "The club is aware of the statement issued by Queens Park Rangers. The club believes this is somewhat premature."

The west Londoners claimed to have agreed compensation with Palace for Warnock, who is expected to take coaches Keith Curle and Mick Jones with him to Rangers after caretaker boss Mick Harford and his assistant Tony Coton left.

Guilfoyle said: "Discussions are ongoing regarding the release of Neil Warnock and members of his managerial team but these remain subject to agreement of relevant documentation."
