QPR are lining up a move for Steve McClaren, according to the Mirror.

The Championship side could axe their current manager, Ian Holloway, over the coming days and reportedly want Steve McClaren to replace him.

The 57-year-old is keen to return to the game after leaving his role at Maccabi-Tel-Aviv in December and could be offered a route back with QPR. He worked with the London side in 2014 when they were promoted to Premier League under Harry Redknapp.

McClaren is an experienced boss and QPR want to bring him in to help lift them up the table next season. The Loftus Road club finished 16th this season and want to be competing higher up the league in the next campaign, with Ian Holloway’s future at the club in doubt.

McClaren has had a lengthy managerial career after playing for the likes of Hull City, Derby County, Bristol City and Oxford United as a player. He has had managerial spells at Middlesbrough, the England national team, FC Twente, Wolfsburg, Nottingham Forest, Derby County and Newcastle United. This is as well as having coaching stints at Manchester United (where he started his coaching career under Sir Alex Ferguson), QPR and Maccabi Tel-Aviv.

QPR need to improve next season and Steve McClaren is a good option for them as he already knows the club and the Championship very well.
