Rangers will take on the Clarets at Loftus Road in the Championship this afternoon.
The game in London will be Hasselbaink’s first in charge of QPR, and the former Leeds United and Chelsea striker is looking forward to it.
Thank you for the overwhelming messages of support I have received #QPR— Jimmy Floyd (@jf9hasselbaink) December 11, 2015
I'm really looking forward to taking charge of my first game at home to Burnley tomorrow. #QPR— Jimmy Floyd (@jf9hasselbaink) December 11, 2015
Hasselbaink was in charge of Burton Albion from November 2014 until last week.
The former Netherlands international striker guided the Brewers to promotion to League One from League Two at the end of last season.
QPR fans will hope that Hasselbaink is able to do something similar at Loftus Road and guide the team back to the Premier League.
Rangers are 13th in the Championship table at the moment with 26 points from 19 matches.
The London outfit are just three points behind Cardiff City, who are currently sixth and occupy the final playoff spot.
A top-two finish is probably beyond QPR now, but they can certainly claim a playoff spot.
QPR fans have responded to Hasselbaink’s messages on Twitter. Below are some of the best comments:
