Mark Warburton has denied rumours he is about to leave Queens Park Rangers to take up a role as assistant technical director at the FA. 

An article in The Sun proposed that the Rangers boss had been linked to the role and was set to leave the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium at the end of the season, although this has been immediately refuted by the club.

The FA is looking to appoint a new person in the role after previous incumbent John McDermott was promoted to technical director at the start of the year - replacing the outgoing Les Reed.

But the new man won’t be Warburton, with the R’s boss dampening the rising speculation after Tuesday night’s 1-0 victory over Swansea City. 

Warburton said: “I don’t know where this has come from, there isn’t a grain of truth in it.

“I’m completely committed to QPR and am focused on the job in hand.”

CEO Lee Hoos added: “Mark Warburton is not leaving for The FA.

“It’s a pity the publication did not bother checking their facts before releasing the article which is so wide of the mark.”

The news of Warburton’s apparent departure came after the Hoops recorded their second away win in three days on Tuesday night, as Lyndon Dykes’ last-minute strike secured all three points away at high-flying Swansea City. 

The R’s continued their impressive end-of-season form with another inspired performance at the Liberty Stadium, making it seven wins in their last 11 league outings, and see them climb into eighth spot in the Championship table. 

The two sides were evenly matched for much of the 90 minutes in South Wales, with both teams rattling the woodwork, while stand-in goalkeeper Joe Lumley produced a sublime stop to deny Korey Smith in the second half. 

And just as the game looked to be ending all square, Dykes was on hand to rifle in his fifth goal in five matches to see QPR take all three points back home to the capital, and all but quash the Swans' faint automatic promotion hopes. 

Shot-stopper Lumley came into the team as a replacement for regular No.1 Seny Dieng - who was dismissed against Middlesbrough at the weekend - and Warburton was delighted with the 26-year-old’s performance between the sticks. 

“I am delighted for Joe, what you saw tonight was a keeper who was confident, dominant, he communicated for 90 minutes and gave real assurance to the backline,” the R’s boss said. 

“We are blessed to have so many talented keepers at the club, and tonight Joe was outstanding.”

“We looked a good team tonight and got a well-deserved three points.

“I have spoken before about playing well and not getting your rewards, but we didn’t let that happen tonight.”
