Brentford manager Mark Warburton has played down rumours that he is to become the next QPR manager.
Warburton has done an incredible job at Brentford this season after promotion from League One last season.
His side were considered one of the favourites to go down this year, but have stunned the Sky Bet Championship and are currently pushing for a play-off place.
However, in a hugely controversial decision, the Bees owners have decided to part company with the 52-year-old in order to put in place a new system at the club, tested at a side owned by the same people.
This decision has put plenty of clubs on alert, Premier League relegation favourites QPR being one of them, but Warburton has said he wants to respect caretaker boss Chris Ramsey.
Warburton told Sky Sports: “It’s always flattering to be linked with any type of job, especially one of that stature. But I know Chris Ramsey very well, and I would never be disrespectful.
“I know the qualities and experience Chris will bring to that job, and I hope very much he’s successful in keeping the club in the Premier League. The important thing now is to retain focus, get to the end of season, and from there you see what the options are.
“Football’s a funny game – people are very complimentary, but you just don’t know, so let’s see come the end of the season what’s happened at various clubs and what offers, if any, are on the table.”
The Bees were lucky to collect a point from their last game against strugglers Millwall, and scored two goals in the finals five minutes to make the score 2-2.
The West London club currently in 7th place in the Sky Bet Championship, having accumulated 66 points this season.
