Relegation is not something you'd necessarily put at the top of your CV but it hasn't stopped Chris Ramsey from getting a permanent deal at QPR.

The popular Rangers boss has been made head coach until 2018 at the West London club.

Despite a record of just three wins in 14 games he has the backing of the board and now will be expected to rebuild the team in the Championship.

But if QPR want to "bounce back" as chairman Tony Fernandes puts it then they may have to adopt a different approach.

The focus will now be on developing young players coming through the youth ranks as opposed to splashing the cash on big name signings.

As former boss Harry Redknapp told me Ramsey has a lot of senior players out of contract this summer and that will help him in that task.

QPR are also still in negotiations surrounding financial fair play so this will definitely not be an overnight job.

So if he can bring some stability to Loftus Road after a dramatic and disappointing season perhaps Chris Ramsey is just the type of cool head they need in charge.
