Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Tim Sherwood has publically spoken about the possibility of him becoming the next man in charge at Queens Park Rangers.
Sherwood has been out of work as a manager since leaving Aston Villa in 2015, but has more recently had an unsuccessful spell as director of football at Swindon Town.
Steve McLaren was dismissed by the Championship side on Monday after less than a year in charge with QPR eight points above the relegation zone and having won only one of their last 15 league games.
QPR director of football Les Ferdinand has a close relationship with Sherwood, having worked together while Sherwood was in charge at White Hart Lane.
Sherwood was sacked by Daniel Levy in May 2014 after the club finished sixth in the Premier League.
He took over from Andre Villas-Boas in the December and signed a deal to the end of the 2014-15 season but was replaced by Mauricio Pochettino.
When asked about the QPR vacancy, Sherwood told BT Sport’s Score programme as quoted by Football.London: “It is a difficult job, but it is also a fantastic football club.
“If they have got realistic expectations for the future, it is an opportunity for someone to go in and it is something I would look at, but at the moment it is just speculation and a lot of talk.”
