QPR manager Neil Warnock has laughed off reports he will be replace by Marcello Lippi if the club are promoted to the Premier League.
Former Hoops chairman Flavio Briatore, a major shareholder along with Bernie Ecclestone, said in an interview earlier this week that his ‘dream’ would be to see World Cup-winning coach Lippi manage the club in the top flight of English football.
But former Sheffield United and Crystal Palace boss Warnock, who has since received the full public backing of the Rangers board, is not about start fearing for his job.
He told the Ealing Gazette: “I take this with a pinch of salt if I’m honest.
“Worried? My stock’s never been higher. And I get on well with Flavio when we chat once a week or so. He has given me his views but he understands I make the decisions – and he’s happy with that.”
