QPR chose to sack Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink last Saturday following a 1-1 draw at Nottingham Forest – a result which left the R's in 17th place in the Championship table after just two wins in the last ten games.
That left Tony Fernandes looking for yet another new manager, and whilst names like Tim Sherwood, Karl Robinson and Paul Clement were all touted for the job, QPR have moved to bring Ian Holloway back to the club.
Holloway, 53, racked up more than 150 appearances for the club during his playing days, and then returned to the club as manager in 2001, spending almost five years in the job as he won 100 of his 252 games in charge.
Holloway went on to manage Plymouth Argyle, Leicester City, Blackpool, Crystal Palace and Millwall, but has remained a popular figure at QPR – and now, he's back.
QPR announced on Friday evening that Holloway has been re-appointed as the club's manager on a two-year contract, after almost ten years away from Loftus Road.
After the announcement, QPR legend and club ambassador Andy Sinton took to Twitter to share his view on the appointment – and it's fair to say that he's happy with the move.
Sinton, who played alongside Holloway at QPR, suggested that the new boss is a 'true QPR man', and will bring passion back to the club during his second spell as manager.
Are you happy with the appointment of Holloway?
