Here are five candidates to take over.
Out of work and already linked with the job, Redknapp would be an ideal manager to take over because of his experience and his roots in London. He is the odds on favourite and would fit in well at the club because he’s no stranger at handling squads filled with egotistical stars. It would also give everyone outside of the club a lift.
Sven Goran Eriksson
The former England boss has also been linked with the job according to recent reports and he has plenty of experience in managing in England and English teams. However, this appointment may not go down too well with the fans who may want someone a little more vocal on the sidelines to get the team by the scruff of the neck during their relegation battle.
Roberto Di Matteo
This would be a real coup for both Di Matteo and QPR. Freshly sacked from Chelsea he may be looking to get right back into the swing of things and managing QPR would represent a completely different challenge from the one he has just been handling at Chelsea. This smells a bit of all too soon though.
Whenever an English club of any stature becomes available for a coach then it seems Hiddink’s name is always thrown into the occasion. He had a brief spell at Chelsea and has coached all over the world so he would bring a different sort of experience to the table. However, he may be unwilling to leave his current club Anzhi who he only joined earlier this year.
If QPR wanted to think outside the box a little bit then they could appoint a younger and talented manager like Karl Robinson. Robinson has been learning the art of management in the lower leagues in England and it would be a massive gamble by QPR in terms of Robinson having no experience at the highest level and the younger players coming to respect him.
Who do you think could be the next QPR boss?
