QPR were close to signing Craig Bellamy - Neil Warnock

QPR manager Neil Warnock declares himself "delighted" with his deadline day captures, despite Craig Bellamy's decision to return to Liverpool rather than move to west London.

Warnock pays tribute to the support of new chairman Tony Fernandes, and feels that players like Shaun Wright-Phillips, Joey Barton and Luke Young will drive the club forward.

The Lotus Road boss also reveals that a car crash almost halted Anton Ferdinand's last-gasp move from Sunderland.
