After the sacking of Chris Ramsey yesterday, Ian Holloway has emerged as a potential candidate to become the Queens Park Rangers manager for the second time.

The ex-Blackpool boss first managed the west London club in 2001 and went on to spend five years with them, after also spending the same amount of time as a player there, during 1991 to 1996.

He endured a relegation to the third tier of English football in 2001 with the Rs but stayed on at the club to win promotion back to the Championship in 2004.

The 52-year-old took Blackpool to the Premier League as well as Crystal Palace in 2013. And there’s a chance he could replicate that with QPR.

The Hoops currently sit 13th in the Championship and have only won twice in their last ten league games which is why the board had a relatively easy option to relieve Ramsey from his duties.

Despite becoming a very early favourite, it is unlikely Tony Fernandes, the Co-chairman of QPR, will look at Tim Sherwood, as revealed by Get West London.

Dozens have applied for the vacancy, but the former Aston Villa and Tottenham manager is unlikely to be offered the job.

Whilst the search for a new manager begins, the experienced Neil Warnock will take temporary charge of the club he once managed permanently.

Along with Holloway (and Warnock), Les Ferdinand, Malky Makay and Uwe Rosler are also in the running for the Queens Park Rangers job.
