QPR have confirmed Ian Holloway’s return as manager.
Holloway, who has signed a two-and-a-half-year contract, made more than 150 appearances for Rangers as a player and later had a five-year spell as boss.
That spell included a play-off final in 2003 and promotion to the Championship the following year.
He took over in 2001, shortly before QPR went into administration.
Rangers were relegated that season and Holloway is widely credited with galvanising the club.
He was axed in 2006 and has since has won promotions at Blackpool and Crystal Palace and also managed Plymouth, Leicester and Millwall.
Former R’s midfielder Marc Bircham is poised to return to Loftus Road as assistant boss.
