QPR boss Warburton wants realistic date for resumption of Football League

QPR boss Mark Warburton has called on The Football League to provide a realistic date for the resumption of football in the UK.

He says they should consider playing until the end of the calendar year in order to finish out the season.

"I get really frustrated," the ex Rangers manager told the Press Association.

"I can't understand, you can't have this global pandemic and expect nothing to change.You have to feel change somewhere, we need to finish this season and I can't believe in some places what I am reading about cancelling the season.

Warburton added that he would back making changes to next year's campaign if needed to do so:

"For the integrity of the game, for the fans, they need this season to finish - so we do that. If that means we finish everything by November 1, we say the new season would start December 1.

"There is a four-week transfer window, we deal with it. Then we have got from December 1 to say, through to May 21, we have got to put our season into there.

"What do we do? A one-season different format? Do you have a knockout type where the top-half go into play-offs? A different format for one season to recognise the fact we have faced an unprecedented social event.

"We are going to have some pain, people might not like it, but we just have to finish this season.

"I'm speaking from a neutral standpoint, QPR in the middle of the table, we aren't Liverpool or West Brom or Leeds at the top of the table but you have got to finish this season.
