Chris Ramsey says he would welcome another chance as a manager if the opportunity arose.
Ramsey had a difficult nine months at the helm at QPR, where he is now technical director.
And he told West London Sport: “If the right opportunity came up again then I wouldn’t turn it down. You always want to test yourself.
“I think you have to want to. You’d owe it to yourself really.
“I don’t think I did a bad job in what were difficult circumstances at the time. It was a difficult time for the club.”
Ramsey’s current role has involved helping Rangers develop young talent and pick up players released by other clubs.
They have included Ebere Eze, who has impressed since being given another chance to make it as a pro after being released by Millwall.
“We’re looking for players who have maybe been let go by other clubs and are perhaps late developers,” Ramsey said.
“The focus has been on bringing in these type of players and developing those already in our academy set-up.
“The recruitment really is key and you can pick up good players, but I suppose in a sense you have to kiss a lot of frogs as well.
“We’d be naive to say we can go and pick up players like Ruben Loftus-Cheek at the age of 16. We’re working in a different market.”
