QPR appoint Neil Critchley as new manager after Burnley defeat
The former Blackpool boss has signed a three-and-a-half-year contract after replacing Michael Beale, who joined Rangers last month.
Critchley previously took over from Beale as assistant manager at Aston Villa in the summer, after Beale moved to Loftus Road, but was out of work after Steven Gerrard was sacked in October.
“I’m very excited and can’t wait to get started,” Critchley told the club’s official website, after being named after QPR’s 3-0 home loss to Burnley on Sunday left them ninth in the Championship. Sky Bet.
“It is a huge honor for me and I would like to thank the owners, Les Ferdinand and Lee Hoos for entrusting me with the management of the club.
“I would also like to thank Paul Hall and his team for their hard work during the interim period.
“Now I’m looking forward to working with the players and the staff. I already know some players from having worked with them before and I know a number of them, having followed their careers from afar.
“There has been a good foundation laid here and now it’s my job to work as hard as I can to build on that.
“We want to take the club forward and make sure we compete at the top of the league table.”
