QPR boss Beale linked with Wolves and Rangers jobs

Mick Beale is being heavily linked with the manager’s jobs at Wolves and his former club Rangers – less than five months after taking over as QPR boss.

Beale is being considered for the Wolves hotseat, according to the Express & Star, who say he is on the shortlist to take charge at Molineux following the recent sacking of Bruno Lage.

Wolves have spoken to their former manager Nuno Espirito Santo about a potential return for a second spell in charge, but it appears that Beale is also very much in the running, although West London Sport reports that no approach has been made for him.

Beale, in his first managerial job, has made a good start to his reign at QPR, who are fourth in the Championship table.

He took over at Loftus Road after a spell as assistant to Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard, who he also worked with in Glasgow at Rangers.

And he has been linked with a possible return to Ibrox, where current manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst is under some pressure.

According to journalist Alan Nixon, Beale is being considered by Rangers as a potential successor to Van Bronckhorst if the Dutchman is replaced.

QPR fans will certainly be hoping Beale remains at their club and leads a promotion challenge.

Prior to Saturday’s loss at Luton, he led his team to three consecutive wins, including victories over fellow Championship high-fliers Reading and Sheffield United.
