Queens Park Rangers’ recent defeat to Bolton saw Steve McClaren sacked as manager in a long overdue development.
Results of late, simply put, have not been good enough, prompting QPR into making a decision.
And according to Sky Sports, the west London club could now move for Tim Sherwood as they look to replace McClaren.
Portsmouth’s Kenny Jackett is also said to be a target for QPR (also per Sky Sports) but, with the 57-year-old unlikely to depart Fratton Park now, Sherwood remains a more realistic name in this moment of time.
Sherwood’s name, however, may not be one to get the Loftus Road faithful jumping up and down, though the former Aston Villa and Tottenham boss could prove to be a decent option on a short-term basis.
At the above clubs, Sherwood did a decent job steadying things at first after arriving in collapsing environments.
If he is willing to accept the QPR job just until the end of season, then he would not be the worst possible appointment out there.
You can have a look at what supporters have had to say on the speculation linking Sherwood to the Loftus Road dugout below…

I have to turn the volume down if he is a pundit for a game, he looks more frustrated every time I see him. It’s a no from me.

Another failure what's he ever done in management

So sick of seeing Sherwood constantly linked to QPR.
Look, hire the guy, let him fail miserably & then once were in League One we can finally move on.
