QPR sacked boss Ian Holloway and are set to announce former England and Derby County boss Steve McClaren as his replacement.

QPR sacked Holloway after he led the club to just 16th place in the table and the R’s are set to move quickly to announce a new manager according to Sky Sports.

Former England boss Steve McClaren is the man who is set to be tasked with the job of taking QPR higher up the league table next season.

The last club that McClaren managed was Derby County, who sacked him after he failed to get the club near the Play-Off places at the time.

Now, the R’s are planning to give him another chance in the Sky Bet Championship by offering him a deal as manager.

Talks between McClaren and QPR are said to be ongoing and are close to being finalised, meaning he could soon take the helm at the club.

In addition, McClaren has worked for the R’s before, having coached at the club under Harry Redknapp back when he in charge.

If the R’s do announce him as their manager, then it’ll be the fifth English team he has managed and his it’ll also be his sixth stint in charge of an English side (having managed Derby on two separate occasions).

McClaren managed Wolfsburg in Germany and Twente in Holland and has also been in charge the England team.

McClaren’s won a total of two trophies in his managerial career – the League Cup in charge of Middlesbrough and the Eredivisie when he was in charge of Twente.
