QPR consider Bircham

9th April 2019, 20:07 by Tom Hill

Marc Bircham is being considered by QPR after he was interviewed for the vacant manager's job, according to reports.

The club's former midfielder could be set for an emotional return to Loftus Road after Steve McClaren was sacked earlier this month.

QPR have yet to decide their next move but Bircham is well liked at the club and knows the managerial side of the game after serving as an assistant to Ian Holloway last season.

The 40-year-old coached many of the young players that QPR are keen to either nurture or introduce to the first team next season as they try to cut costs.

Rangers are not expected to appoint Steve McClaren's successor before Wednesday's trip to Millwall, which will again be overseen by caretaker manager John Eustace.

Tim Sherwood remains the front-runner to replace McClaren, but QPR have also spoken to Nigel Pearson, Darren Moore, Steve Cotterill and Michael Appleton while Bircham's arrival will go down well with the club's fans.
