Fresh candidate emerges as QPR continue their search to find McClaren’s successor

Published

QPR are still on the hunt to appoint Steve McClaren’s successor at Loftus Road and supporters will be keen to see a new manager in charge at the earliest of opportunities. 

The likes of Tim Sherwood and Michael Appleton are said to be the frontrunners for the vacancy, but a new name has emerged as they continue their search.

Former Nottingham Forest boss, Billy Davies is the latest manager to be linked with the job according to West London Sport.

Davies could well be tempted by the prospect of returning to management after a spell out of the game since he was last in charge of Forest in 2014.

The 54-year-old has had success with the Reds, Derby County and Preston North End as a manager, and should certainly be taken as a serious candidate to succeed McClaren, who was relieved of his duties earlier this month. 

Whoever is to take charge at QPR, will need to adjust to life at Loftus Road as quickly as possible, as they are in the middle of a relegation scrap at this moment in time.

The Hoops are currently sat 18th in the Championship and are just six points clear of the drop zone, which will make for concerning reading for supporters.

QPR are next in action when they take on Swansea City, in what will be a tricky fixture as Graham Potter’s side have been in impressive form of late.

The Verdict: 

This could be a decent appointment by QPR.

Davies knows the Championship well and could be the ideal candidate needed to help steer QPR clear of their relegation fears.

They need to appoint a new manager ASAP though, otherwise they’re in real trouble this season and could well be relegated from the Championship if they don’t act swiftly.
