Ramsey handed three-year deal

Chris Ramsey has been tasked with reviving QPR after being appointed head coach on a three-year contract.

The 53-year-old took temporary charge of Rangers in February in the wake of Harry Redknapp's resignation, but he could not prevent their relegation from the Barclays Premier League for the second time in three seasons.

Now he has been appointed until the end of the 2018 season Ramsey can focus on building for the future with QPR, who are in negotiations over a probable Football League financial fair play penalty which could be up to £58million.

Chairman Tony Fernandes said: "When Chris took over the role we were already in a very difficult position, yet despite our relegation, we - as a board - have been impressed with the professionalism and attention to detail he has demonstrated since becoming head coach.

"He lives and breathes management and coaching, and I am sure he will flourish in this role as we look to bounce back from this season's disappointments. This is a new start for us and one I am confident Chris will relish playing a major part in."

Ramsey said: "This is a fantastic opportunity for me and one I am tremendously excited about. I enjoyed my time in temporary charge, despite the way the season panned out, and now I'm looking forward to the challenge of helping rebuild this club over the coming years."
