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.
