Neil Warnock today set his sights on reaching the Premier League with QPR after being unveiled as the new manager at Loftus Road.
Warnock quit Crystal Palace on Monday to move from south to west London with Rangers in danger of being sucked into the relegation battle.
The 61-year-old becomes the club's fifth manager of the season but, following Flavio Briatore's departure as chairman, is hoping his arrival will herald a new era of stability.
Warnock, who has signed a three-and-a-half-year deal, said: "It's something I didn't envisage over the last couple of years but this has always been a great football club.
"Although I thought the contract was three and a half weeks!
"Stability has not been around this club for a while but it's the right challenge at the right time for me. All I want is a chance.
"I want to stabilise this season and then take the club on. Everyone knows I want to manage in the Premier League and I don't think there are many clubs coming in for me."
New chairman Ishan Saksena is keen to steer the club away from the revolving door of managers under Briatore.
"QPR has a history of being a family club so I want to welcome Neil as the latest member of the QPR family," he said.
"It is important to bring back stability - he will bring that back and lead the way in a bright future for the club.
"He is the complete package as a manager and was always our number one choice."
