Neil Warnock uncertain about his future as QPR manager

QPR manager Neil Warnock has admitted he does not know if he will be in charge of the club next season in the Premier League.

QPR vice-chairman Amit Bhatia has said Warnock's job is safe - but the 62-year-old remains cautious.

"I'm not totally confident - it's one of those things," said Warnock.

"I don't want to leave London and I will be disappointed. I'm sure my stock has not gone down - but anything is possible.

"I spoke to my two leaders Flavio [Briatore] and Bernie [Ecclestone] this morning and both wished me all the best. I hope my contract is watertight!"

QPR were three points off the relegation zone when Warnock signed a three-and-a-half year deal in March 2010, joining the Loftus Road club from Crystal Palace.

And 14 months on Warnock has led the club into the Premier League for the first time in 15 years after the FA lifted the threat of a significant points reduction regarding Argentine midfielder's Alejandro Faurlin's ownership during his 2009 transfer from Instituto.

That announcement at 1144BST on Saturday sparked huge scenes of celebration at Loftus Road, although the west London club have been fined £875,000 after being found guilty of two of the seven charges against them.

The independent tribunal had been scheduled to deliver its findings by 1600 BST on Friday but the verdict was delayed because of the weight of evidence.

Warnock hailed the resolve of his players after they were presented with the Championship trophy following their anti-climatic 2-1 defeat by Leeds.

"The lads have been through agony over the last seven weeks. We never planned anything with what has been hanging over our heads - but I think tonight we might celebrate."

And Warnock said his team have been rightly rewarded for their consistent performances, despite suffering only their second home defeat of the season against Leeds.

"How the players have coped has been amazing, Ali Faurlin in particular," Warnock told BBC Sport.

"To do what they have done this season has been absolutely incredible."

Warnock described his team's promotion as the "best moment" in his 32-year managerial career.

"To turn it around in 14 months is fantastic," he added.

"I brought a lot of players in, some players who thought they were finished, some who thought they would never get a chance of promotion.

"I told them from day one we have a hell of a chance if you stick with me.

"As a team we have entertained wherever we have gone, we have only been beaten six times this season and we have played some incredibly good football."
