Former Norwich City midfielder Tim Sherwood is leading the bookies’ odds to be the next QPR boss, as the hunt for Steve McClaren’s replacement begins ahead of Saturday’s clash with the Canaries.
Assistant manager John Eustace has been placed in interim charge as Rangers start their search, so could be the man in the dug-out for Saturday lunchtime’s televised match at Carrow Road (12.30pm).
Sherwood – who made 88 appearances for Norwich between 1989 and 1992 – is friends with former Tottenham team-mate Les Ferdinand, who is QPR’s director of football.
He has had short and mostly unsuccessful stints as a manager at Spurs and Aston Villa, before a spell as director of football at Swindon Town in 2016-17, which ended in relegation to League Two.
The 50-year-old has been working as a TV pundit ever since but Sky Bet have installed him as the 2/5 favourite for the Rs vacancy.
