LONDON (AP) - Queens Park Rangers has appointed Chris Ramsey as head coach until the end of the season after he took over as a caretaker following the departure of Harry Redknapp.

Ramsey guided QPR to its first away win of the season to lift it out of the Premier League relegation zone this week after Redknapp resigned, saying he needed to undergo knee surgery.

QPR Chairman Tony Fernandes said Ramsey “has impressed everyone here in his short time in charge and I firmly believe he is the right man … to lead us until the end of the season.”

Fernandes said club officials spoke to several other interested candidates, but that “none of them were right to take the club forward at this time for a variety of reasons.”

Ramsey becomes the only current black Premier League manager.
