Reports today (Friday) suggest that QPR are close to announcing former England assistant manager John Gorman as Jim Magilton's right hand man.

The East Anglian Times is reporting that Gorman was shown around Loftus Road yesterday (Thursday) and is meeting with Rangers chiefs on Monday to discuss a deal to bring him to W12.

"I have not signed a contract yet, but have a meeting at the club on Monday," said Magilton.

"Jim Magilton deserves to be back in management, and I am delighted to be continuing my association with him.

"We are looking ahead with confidence to the 2009/10 campaign and will be making a big note of the matches against Ipswich when the fixture list is published next week."


He also took the opportunity to assess his prospective club and didn't rule out the prospect of finishing above his former employers Ipswich Town.

"Things are ticking at Rangers already, he continued.

"It is a famous club that I have always rated and Loftus Road is a wonderful stadium for football.

"Whether we can finish above Ipswich is something we shall have to wait and see, but I wish Ipswich well."


Gorman`s playing career started with Glasgow Celtic before moving on to make 261 appearances for Carlisle United. Later in his career he played alongside QPR legend Rodney Marsh for American outfit, Tampa Bay Rowdies.

The 59-year-old has spent the majority of his coaching career alongside Glenn Hoddle, initially with Swindon Town before an unsuccessful spell in sole charge of the Robins. He assisted Hoddle in one of the biggest jobs in football - the England national team.

After Hoddle`s acrimonious departure he followed him to Southampton and then Tottenham Hotspur. Leaving Spurs Gorman had two spells at Wycombe Wanderers sandwiching a caretaker spell at Gillingham.

Gorman departed his permanent role at Wycombe Wanderers owing to personal reasons owing to the bereavement of his wife. He resurfaced as permanent boss of Northampton Town replacing the outgoing Colin Calderwood.

A bad memory of Loftus Road came as Ray Jones scored the winning goal in a League Cup victory of QPR over Gorman's Cobblers.

Following his departure from Northampton he took up a chief scout role at struggling Southampton. With George Burley leaving his post at St Mary's Gorman and Jason Dodd stood in the interim period before leaving upon the appointment of Nigel Pearson.

He joined Jim Magilton in the latter part of 2008 but departed Portman Road along with Magilton in April 2009.
