Neil Warnock has hit out at the Premier League's "scandalous" decision to prevent QPR making an emergency loan signing after both first-choice goalkeepers were injured.

The Rs boss hit out at the league after he was forced to play third-choice keeper Radek Cerny in Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Norwich at Carrow Road. With back-up stopper Brian Murphy already ruled out with a calf injury, the west Londoners suffered a fresh blow this week when first-team regular Paddy Kenny was ruled out for up to two months with strained muscle on his side.

Warnock approached the Premier League for permission to sign an emergency goalkeeper but had his appeal rejecte, and he said: "Paddy got injured last week and we asked the Premier League if we could sign an emergency keeper. They told us that we had to bring back a lad (20-year-old Elvijs Putnins) from Boreham Wood who has never played in the reserves."
