Sherwood hints he is ready to take QPR job – but they may look elsewhere

Tim Sherwood has indicated that he is interested in taking over at QPR – but a report claims the club are looking elsewhere.

West London Sport recently reported that Steve McClaren faced the sack as Rangers manager and that Sherwood was the club’s first-choice replacement, with Gary Rowett, Mark Warburton and Michael Appleton also of interest.

McClaren’s dismissal was subsequently confirmed by Rangers, who were thrashed 4-0 at Norwich on Saturday with John Eustace in caretaker charge.

Sherwood has since spoken for the first time about taking over at Loftus Road, where his friend and former Tottenham colleague Les Ferdinand is director of football.

And Sherwood hinted that he would not be put off by the difficult financial position Rangers are in.

Speaking on BT Sport, he said: “It’s a difficult job but it’s also a fantastic football club.

“If they’ve got realistic expectations of the future, and there was an opportunity to go in, it’s something I would look at.”

However, it has been been claimed that Rui Almeida, the manager of French second-tier side Troyes, is of interest.

Football.London claim Almeida “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.
