Ryan Nelsen's last game in a QPR shirt will be against Manchester City on January 29 after confirmation he will start his job with Toronto FC on February 1.

The 35-year-old New Zealand international announced his decision to become head coach at the Canadian MLS side on January 8.

Nelsen has been one of the standout performers for Rangers this season and his departure will leave a hole in manager Harry Redknapp's defensive plans.
