Warnock: Reassured over charges
Neil Warnock believes the Football Association charges levelled at Queens Park Rangers have no similarity to the Carlos Tevez affair.
The Championship leaders were charged by the FA earlier this week with seven breaches of regulations relating to third-party ownership and agents.
The charges relate to Argentinian midfielder Alejandro Faurlin, who signed for Rangers for a club-record fee believed to be in the region of £3.5million in 2009.
QPR could be docked points if they are found guilty, with the situation drawing inevitable comparisons with the situation involving Tevez and Javier Mascherano when they were at West Ham in 2006/07.
On that occasion, the Premier League elected to impose a £5.5million fine on the Hammers rather than impose any points penalty.
That decision contributed to Sheffield United, who were then managed by Warnock, suffering relegation from the top-flight at the expense of the Hammers, who survived largely thanks to the goals from Tevez.
The Loftus Road boss, who will doubtless be all-too aware of the irony of the current situation, believes parallels cannot be drawn between the two cases.
Warnock told the Daily Mail: "I've spoken to our legal advisers and they have been very reassuring.
"From what they have told me, this is nothing like the Tevez situation."
