Former QPR defender Warren Neill has joined manager John Gregory's backroom team.

Neill will help Gregory until the end of the season after assistant boss Richard Hill was axed following the brawl between a QPR reserve side and the Chinese Olympic team last month.
Hill will not face police charges having been arrested after the incident, but he will face an FA charge of violent conduct and chairman Gianni Paladini does not want him back at Loftus Road.
Neill, 44, is a former Rangers team-mate of Gregory and a lifelong fan of the club.
He was an apprentice at Loftus Road before making 224 appearances for the Rs between 1980 and 1988.
He played in the 1982 FA Cup final replay against Tottenham and the Milk Cup final against Oxford four years later.
Neill moved to Portsmouth and had a brief spell at Watford before returning to QPR as a coach after his playing career ended.
He was the academy director before losing his job after Rangers went into administration in 2001. Gazette
