Who is QPR's manager?

Queens Park Rangers manager Mark Warburton was born in London, 1962. A defender by trade, he spent his entire career with just two teams. His playing days were brief. He played 135 times over an eight-year spell.

He began his footballing education at Leicester City where he took part in the youth setup overseen by Frank McLintock. He was unable to make the cut to feature in Leicester's senior squad, however, and was subsequently released. He would go on to play predominantly non-league football.

Enfield was his first destination, although his appearances for the club were rather limited. He featured 28 times over the course of his four years there. The limited footballing opportunities were made up for by a trophy-laden spell with the side; they won the Football Association Trophy in the 1981/82 season and the Alliance Premier League trophy the following year in 1982/83.

He would later make the switch to Boreham Wood. The Hertfordshire side was based in the Isthmian League. Of the two clubs Warburton played for, Boreham Wood was the one where he played the most football although his time there was shorter in terms of years. He would feature in three campaigns for the side before deciding to hang up his boots. The reason for his early retirements was his recurring cruciate ligament injuries, the bane of so many professional sportsmen and women. 

He played briefly for teams in the Chicago league when he moved to the United States, but never to a high standard. Upon moving back to the United Kingdom, Warburton would begin a coaching career with Watford. He oversaw several of the club’s youth teams before leaving, citing disagreements with several other coaching staff as his reason for doing so.

Warburton would then make the short trip to Brentford where, again, he would coach the youth teams - after this he would rise through the ranks, eventually becoming assistant manager. When the previous managerial incumbent left the club, Warburton was appointed caretaker manager.

The position would ultimately be made permanent, making this Warburton's first venture into management. He had an excellent start, he won the League One Manager of the Month Award. His team's good form continued and Brentford were promoted to the Championship as runners-up. This was widely regarded as a magnificent achievement for a new manager, especially given Brentford's status and budget.

In the following season, Warburton would continue to impress plaudits. His Brentford side consistently punched well above their weight. In fact, they flirted with the playoff places several times throughout the season. Although it was not to be, Warburton's influence over the Bees was recognised and he received two Championship Manager of the Month awards to add to his League One equivalent. 

Much to the majority of the Brentford fan-base's dismay, Warburton and his coaching staff announced that they would be leaving the club at the end of 2014/15 season. They alleged that the team’s scouting policy was not up to scratch and that this was irreconcilable. Warburton had a host of suitors from some of the best clubs in the Championship and quite a few Premier League teams also. Warburton instead would choose to leave England in favour of Scotland, specifically for Rangers.

Rangers were famously relegated to the fourth tier of Scottish football several years previously and, when Warburton took over, the club lay in the second tier. He guided them comfortably to promotion. He also won the Scottish Challenge Cup with the Gers, making his first season a resounding success. In the 16/17 season, Rangers competed in the title race with fierce rivals Celtic but were ultimately unable to upset the green and white half of Glasgow's dominance. Warburton and his staff resigned, again citing irreconcilable internal differences as their reason for doing so.

Following his leaving Rangers, Warburton joined Nottingham Forest. His spell at the club was brief however, he lasted less than a year after failing to make Forest competitive in the division.

After a brief hiatus from the game, Warburton was appointed manager of Championship side Queens Park Rangers. The present incumbent of the managerial position at Loftus Road, Warburton's brief is to make QPR challenge for the play-off places once again. Bar the blip at Nottingham Forest, Warburton's CV is impressive and therefore the Queen's Park Rangers fans have every reason to be optimistic.
