Queens Park Rangers betting update: Clarence Seedorf linked, Pearson still favourite

Chris Ramsey has lost his job as QPR manager - who could replace him?

Queens Park Rangers confirmed on their official website earlier this month that they parted company with manager Chris Ramsey following a 1-0 defeat to Derby County.

Ramsey was appointed R's boss in March following the departure of Harry Redknapp, and was charged with the task of taking QPR back to the Premier League.

QPR managed to keep hold of star players such as Matt Phillips, Leroy Fer and Charlie Austin, but results were poor under Ramsey, and his departure has handed Neil Warnock a temporary spell back in the Loftus Road dugout.

Bookmakers are pricing up odds for who could replace Sherwood - here are some of the notable names involved this evening, with odds compiled by Oddschecker.

Nigel Pearson

The former Leicester City boss remains the favourite with bookmakers. Pearson, who lost his job with the Foxes over the summer, and after almost six months away from football, he may well fancy the challenge of taking QPR back to the Premier League. At 2/5, Pearson is the clear favourite for the job, with QPR no doubt hoping for an appointment before they take on Middlesbrough on Friday.

Neil Warnock

The interim R's boss has taken charge of the team just once since stepping in for Ramsey, and that was a 0-0 draw against Preston North End last weekend. At 66, Warnock isn't really a long-term solution for QPR, but bookmakers still consider him to be one of the favourites for the job. With odds of 4/1, Warnock is still a frontrunner, even if QPR appear to be looking elsewhere too.

Alan Stubbs

Something of a surprise name, Hibernian boss Stubbs has enjoyed a fine run of form recently, recording six wins in a row in the Scottish Championship. The former Everton defender, 44, has won over 64% of his games with Hibernian, but fans may consider him to be an inexperienced option considering that Hibs have been his only job so far. With odds as short as 10/1, it seems that Stubbs could be an option.

Clarence Seedorf

The most bizarre name on the list, Dutchman Seedorf managed AC Milan for just 22 games in 2014, winning 11 of those before losing his job. A three-time Champions League winner as a player with Ajax, Real Madrid and Milan, Seedorf could look for a return to management after his ill-fated spell as Milan boss, with odds of 12/1 now available on him making the shock move to Loftus Road.

David Moyes

Appointing the Scot would be a huge shock, but Moyes is available having lost his job as Real Sociedad boss last week. It's a remarkable fall from grace for Moyes, who was appointed as Sir Alex Ferguson's heir at Old Trafford just two-and-a-half years ago, and whilst he will look for a swift return to English football, a move to Loftus Road seems unlikely. At 10/1, bookmakers still seem to think that Moyes could be a candidate for QPR, in what would be a blockbuster appointment for the R's.
