Premier League strugglers Queens Park Rangers have confirmed the appointment of Chris Ramsey as the club’s manager until the end of the season, replacing Harry Redknapp, BBC
Ramsey was installed in the job in a caretaker capacity when Redknapp resigned earlier in February, the veteran former Tottenham Hotspur boss stepping down citing the need for a knee operation that was now hampering his job.
A former Brighton and Hove Albion and Swindon Town player, Ramsey was on the Tottenham staff under Redknapp before following Redknapp to Loftus Road. The 52-year-old was previously manager of the England Under-20 side, between 1998 and 2000.
