QPR ‘ready’ to appoint new management team

West London Sport understands that Queens Park Rangers are set to appoint Ian Holloway as their new manager. Holloway previously managed the club between 2001 and 2006, and he shall make an emotional return to Loftus Road in the hot-seat once again.

He will be assisted by Marc Bircham, who previously played for QPR and has previously been on the coaching staff as well. The 38-year-old, who is currently a coach at Arizona United, also played for Millwall and was also a coach too.

The QPR hierarchy originally wanted Birmingham City’s Gary Rowett to be appointed but they have again failed to lure him to the job for the second time. They did try to appoint him prior to giving the job to Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, who was relieved of his duties last Sunday.

53-year-old Holloway has never hidden his admiration and love for the football club. He currently works as a TV pundit for Sky Sports, covering their EFL games. He hasn’t managed since a spell at Millwall last year. Since departing QPR in 2006, he has twice guided clubs into the Premier League from the Championship, Blackpool and Crystal Palace. During his spell in the job last time, he took the Hoops to into the English second tier, and also a play-off final in League One the season before. He shall now look to bring the good times back to Loftus Road.
