Queens Park Rangers are reportedly interested in two former Championship managers.

According to the Daily Mail this morning (Thursday) both Jim Magilton and Colin Calderwood are names which head the Rangers hit-list.

Following his departure from Nottingham Forest the former Tottenham Hotspur defender has been helping former boss Iain Dowie at Newcastle United.

Magilton was given the boot from Portman Road in classy fashion by mysterious owner Marcus Evans who relieved him of his duties by telephone while the Ipswich legend was on compassionate leave.

The two names mentioned are certainly not of the calibre we have come to expect from Rangers chiefs, as they opt for Championship experience over foreign flair. However if it`s Championship experience you`re looking for, surely someone more successful than the named duo should be in your sightlines?

Either of these two are wrong choices - no experience of getting teams promoted, Dowie would be a better appointment than either of these..

I hope these are nasty rumours - based on the fact that (a) no-one's been announced yet & (b) the media have nothing better to do than make up fiction - coz neither of these guys inspires me ... they'd both be gone by Christmas (if not before!!)

100% with you Sandy. Considering this piece is from the Daily Mail i can am quite confident it will not be either of there two.

Wouldn't it be nice if once in a while the club refuted some of the more fatuous suggestions? My view of who will be chosen from those on the ever growing list remains "none of the above"

Time for thesse fat lazy journos to get off of the bar stool and stagger off to find out what's really going on, instead of making up these stories in their gin sodden little minds.

Jim is a good, promising manager, and it would be good to see him take on a job in the Championship. QPR would be ideal for him, because he can forget the mistakes he made at Ipswich, but have the backing of the board when it comes to transfers. I'd be delighted to see him back in the game, and would love it if a side like QPR was the team that offered him that. Give him a chance, and he could be a revalation for you.

no, no, no. We've got to aim much higher when looking for a quality manager. With an average manager and average players you get average results !

Precicely Kiwi - while Ipswich fans would like Jim to succeed with Rangers second best I think we can and should be going for better.
