QPR boss won’t rule out move for England international
Warnock also pays tribute to former England captain Beckham
QPR boss Neil Warnock has refused to rule out the possibility of David Beckham joining Rangers in January.
The R’s boss paid tribute to the former England captain at his press conference today and although said he had not spoke about signing the 36-year-old with owner Tony Fernandes, admitted they could make a move in the next transfer window.
“No, it is not a discussion Tony and I have had,” he said.
“I mean obviously it is good news for you lads I suppose and nothing much surprises me at the club but it’s not something we’ve talked about, not myself anyhow.
“I think he is a fabulous professional. I think he has been a great asset to English football, I like him as a person but ask me in January.”
Owner Fernandes has said publicly via twitter that he would like to bring Beckham to Loftus Road but Warnock was keen to show that he was in charge of transfers at the club.

“I think you will have to ask me as and when,” he said.
“I’ve got enough problems worrying about Newcastle (on Monday), I don’t want to worry about that (as well).
“We can’t sign him anyhow, we can’t sign anybody else now until January so why worry?”
