Warnock impressed QPR

He then resigned in 2007 following the club's relegation from the Premier League.
He joined Crystal Palace in 2007 and saved the club from relegation to League One but once the club went into administration he moved to have his first spell at QPR in 2010 before leaving to join Leeds United in 2012 and he was sacked by Leeds in 2013 following a bad run if results.
He then rejoined Crystal Palace wiith the club in the Premier League in August 2014 and left in December 2014 following a sacking for a poor run of form.
He now returns to management all be it on a temporary basis at QPR to take charge for a second time.
