FORMER ENGLAND MANAGER Steve McClaren has been appointed as the new Queens Park Rangers boss.

QPR were without a coach following Ian Holloway’s departure earlier this month and the ex-Newcastle United man’s appointment was confirmed on Friday, as the 57-year-old signed a two-year deal at Loftus Road.

McClaren, who served as a coach at QPR under Harry Redknapp in 2013, told the club’s website: “It’s great to be back and it’s a challenge that I’m excited by.

I must admit that I’ve followed the club closely over the last five years, because of the three months I had here.”

Director of Football Les Ferdinand added: “We are delighted with this appointment and, speaking with Steve, I know how excited he is to be here and how determined he is to be a success.”

McClaren last managed with Derby County in the Championship early last year, but he has been working as a coaching consultant for Maccabi Tel Aviv most recently.
