Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's response when asked whether he'll be in Queens Park Rangers' dugout this weekend

QPR Crest

Queens Park Rangers are said to be interested in appointing Burton Albion boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink as their new boss.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has denied rumours that he is about to take the Queens Park Rangers job in the Burton Mail.

Hasselbaink guided his Burton Albion side to a 1-0 win over Wigan Athletic yesterday evening, to keep them near the top of League One.

However, after the match most the questions he fielded were over his future, with QPR said to be interesting in appointing him.

Hasselbaink, though, says these reports are wide of the mark – and he still has not heard anything from the R’s.

“That's news to me,” Hasselbaink said, when asked whether he would be in the QPR dugout at the weekend. “As far as I'm concerned, I'm in training tomorrow morning with Burton Albion."

Hasselbaink has become in demand due to the job he has done at Burton, where he has guided them to unprecedented success.

The Dutchman helped them earn promotion from League Two last season, and they are now competing in the upper echlons of the third tier.

If Hasselbaink does leave the Pirelli Stadium before the end of the week, his first match as QPR boss will come against Leeds United.
