"We were never worried about whether Dougie would sign. He was focused on delivering consistent performances."

Warburton, who will leave the west London club at the end of the season, added: "He has played exceptionally well for us and everyone is delighted he has signed as we move in to the final stretch of the season.

"It is important to get key players signed up and Dougie will push on to give us the best finish to the season possible."
