NEIL Warnock will have to wait until the summer for Darren Ambrose to join him at QPR.

The new Rangers boss is keen to bring the Crystal Palace star to Loftus Road on loan before signing him permanently in the close season.

However, league rules state you're only allowed a maximum of five loanees in a matchday squad.

The Hoops already have six to choose from, with Adel Taarabt, Jay Simpson, Matt Hill, Carl Ikeme, Marcus Bent and Tamas Priskin already on temporary stays in W12.

A club insider said: "They don't want to pay for players to sit in the stands."
