Crystal Palace midfielder Darren Ambrose wants manager Neil Warnock to remain at the club for the foreseeable future.
Warnock has been linked with a move away from Selhurst Park with Championship rivals QPR reportedly interested in his signature.
The outspoken manager has recently revealed he is not completely happy at the administration-hit club, although the Eagles managed an impressive draw against Premier League Aston Villa at the weekend in the FA Cup.
Ambrose scored a wonder goal to put Palace 2-1 up in that game, and he wants Warnock to ignore any possible approach from Rangers.
"Absolutely I want him to stay, he has put a lot of faith in me," he told the South London Guardian.
"I want to be here and I want him to be the manager when I am here so hopefully the QPR links are just rumours.
"He is a one-off, a one-of-a-kind manager and personally he has helped me a lot and lets me play how I want to play.
"I am enjoying football again, as is every player here.
"What has happened in recent weeks has brought us all closer together, staff included, and he is the main man."
The midfielder's 36-yard free-kick against Villa was worthy of winning any game, but Palace were denied as Stiliyan Petrov nodded in an equaliser with three minutes remaining.
Warnock slammed linesman Trevor Massey after the final whistle for awarding the away side a corner in the build-up to the equaliser, and while Ambrose was delighted with his goal, he was disappointed with the result.
"That's probably one of my favourite goals this season and in my career," he added.
"I felt confident so I just hit it and it went in the right place and I was delighted.
"If you said before the game we would get a replay we would be relatively pleased with that but we held our own against them.
"With three minutes to go I felt we were in the quarter-finals and we are just all devastated in the manner.
"We are very disappointed with the decision which I think has been made clear.
"It was a clear goal-kick but that happens in football, those decisions go against you and we have to go and do it again."
