Former QPR favourite moves into the frame for manager’s job

Former QPR midfielder Marc Bircham has been interviewed for the manager’s job at Loftus Road.

Bircham, who made more than 150 league appearances for Rangers, was Ian Holloway’s assistant and is now vying for the manager’s job at Loftus Road.

West London Sport reports that Bircham has been interviewed along with Nigel Pearson and Steve Cotterill but still say the front-runners are Tim Sherwood, Mark Warburton, Gary Rowett and Michael Appleton.

Football.London, meanwhile, say Rui Almeida, manager of French second-tier side Troyes, “has been contacted by a representative claiming to work on behalf of the club” to see if he is interested in becoming R’s boss.

Rangers are reportedly hoping to make an appointment before the end of the season.

In the meantime, John Eustace remains in caretaker charge – and faces a vital match against fellow strugglers Millwall at The Den on Wednesday night.

Eustace told the club website: “We know we have let ourselves down. We have six games left and I can tell you that the players that go out on that pitch are going to be ready to fight and scrap to keep us in the Championship.

“We are prepared for it and we will be competitive. In every game we play, we need our players to be leaders and we need them to embrace the challenge in front of them.”

    Paul, As far as Im concerned its all crap. You cant tell me that a club such as QPR would sack a manager and then go off interviewing all and sundry as his replacement
