Queens Park Rangers manager Mark Warburton has tested positive for COVID-19 and is currently self-isolating at home, as per government guidelines.

The QPR manager tested positive last week and is now in a period of 10-day isolation, which will end in time for him to be in the dugout when we visit Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday (October 16th 2021).

Warburton said: “I tested positive after feeling unwell.

“Thankfully, I am double-jabbed and now appear to be over the worst of it.

“My time off last week coincided with the players having a pre-agreed few days off going into the international break.
