Eng­land flop Mac joins QPR

Midweek Sport - - SPORT - By MIKE MCGRATH

CRI­SIS club QPR have sunk to a new low – by ap­point­ing wally with a brolly Steve McClaren!

The Eng­land flop has agreed a short-term deal to be part of Harry Red­knapp’s back­room staff at Lof­tus Road.

And the rest of football isn’t safe – McClaren says he’s only us­ing his new role as a route back into man­age­ment.

He said: “It re­mains my am­bi­tion to man­age again. This gives me an ideal op­por­tu­nity to stay in­volved and work on the field with one of the top man­agers in this coun­try and a very am­bi­tious club.

“Rest as­sured, I’ll be do­ing all I can for Harry, the club and the fans to help QPR re­turn to the Pre­mier League.”

Red­knapp said: “Ev­ery­one in the game knows what a top coach Steve is. He’ll add some­thing dif­fer­ent to the group, re­gard­less of how long he is with us for.

“I want new ideas, dif­fer­ent opin­ions and an­other ex­pe­ri­enced head to speak to. That is what Steve brings.”
