Warnock moves closer to the brink at QPR as Fernandes loses patience
Neil Warnock is edging closer to being sacked as Queens Park Rangers boss.
The 63-year-old is under mounting pressure to halt the decline at Loftus Road as fears grow over being sucked into the relegation dogfight.
QPR sit just one point above the drop zone after taking just 17 points from their opening 20 Barclays Premier League matches. They have lost six and drawn two of their last eight league matches.
Under pressure: Neil Warnock is struggling to revive QPR
Owner Tony Fernandes is keen to invest news players during the transfer window and earlier this week denied that Warnock was on his way out.
However, it is understood that the manager's position is now increasingly unstable as the club's make some critical decisions.
Fernandes has backed Warnock so far but there are worries over the quality of the signings made towards the end of the summer transfer window.
On Twitter, Fernandes wrote: 'Guys at qpr. There is no freeze of cash. We are disappointed where we are in the league. This is a journey not a sprint. Along the way we learn. But we continue to develop and along the way hard decisions need to be made. But we never stop moving. Never.
Loan star: Federico Macheda is the only arrival so far in January
'It’s important to note that no one’s job is safe. Results are key. If I don’t deliver I would be the first to step down as chairman. We owe it to the fans. Good money is paid and results are key.'
After Saturday's FA Cup draw at League One side MK Dons, he tweeted: 'Driving back to London. Lots to think about.'
QPR have already signed Federico Macheda on loan from Manchester United, and have lined up bids for Blackburn defender Chris Samba, Fulham striker Andy Johnson, Manchester Cit centre-back Nedum Onuoha and Spurs’ Jermain Defoe.
