R's linked with Moore approach

6th April 2019, 11:12 by Craig Smithson

QPR are reportedly considering a move to appoint Darren Moore as their next manager as Lee Bowyer played down links to the job.

The R's parted ways with former England boss Steve McClaren on Monday, after a dismal run of just one win in 11 matches, and they are now on the lookout to bring in his replacement.

Portsmouth boss Kenny Jackett quickly ruled out moving from Fratton Park to take over the Loftus Road hotseat as he looks to secure promotion from League One to the Championship in the final month of the season.

Meanwhile, Bowyer, who is also looking to guide Charlton to the League One play-offs, has also played down the possibility of taking on the job.

He said: "It's obviously all speculation. I've not spoken to anyone at QPR, so I'm not sure where that's come from.

"It's all part of football. When you're doing well, you get linked to jobs and that's a credit to everyone at the football club."

Tim Sherwood is the current favourite, but it seems the former Tottenham and Aston Villa boss has reservations about the post and that has paved the way clear for Moore.

The 44-year-old was harshly sacked by West Brom last month with the side sitting fourth in the Championship and reports claim the R's would be willing to give him a chance to make a rapid return to management.
