According to The Times, Queens Park Rangers have spoken to Tim Sherwood about the managerial role at the club.

It has been reported that QPR have held talks with the former Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur manager about replacing Steve McClaren, who was dismissed from the role on Monday.

The report has claimed that Sherwood has concerns over QPR’s financial position, and that Rangers could give the managerial role to John Eustace - McClaren’s assistant - until the end of the season.

According to The Times, QPR’s technical director Les Ferdinand is pushing for his former Tottenham teammate Sherwood to be given the managerial role.

Bad situation

QPR are 17th in the Championship table at the moment with 44 points from 39 matches.

Rangers are eight points above the relegation zone, and although it is unlikely that QPR are going to be dragged into the fight for survival, the London club need to improve their performances and results.

QPR have won just once in the Championship since December 26, 2018.
