Championship - Warnock tips Faurlin for big time
Alejandro Faurlin is ready to make headlines for all the right reasons in the Premier League next season, manager Neil Warnock said.
The Argentine midfielder has been at the centre of the storm which could have denied QPR their place in the top flight.
Rangers were finally confirmed as Championship title winners following the announcement from the FA - an hour before they kicked off against Leeds United - that they would not be docked points for breaking third-party ownership rules when they signed Faurlin in 2009.
They were found guilty of two of the seven charges facing them and fined £875,000, meaning the Hoops are back among the elite for the first time in 15 years. And Warnock is backing 24-year-old Faurlin to prove he was worth all the hassle next term.
"Ali Faurlin will set the Premier League alight," said Warnock. "He's handled the situation fantastically. It's not been his fault at all. He's played very well the last few weeks given the situation.
"I don't think he took it personally but it felt so cruel to us all. It's great to move on now. We've got some great players and I think we play some great football. We've gone out home and away to entertain."
