Queens Park Rangers co-caretaker boss Steve Gallen admitted that he considered joining his colleagues John Gorman and Keith Ryan.

The pair opted out of continuing their employment at Rangers while the situation with manager Jim Magilton remains unresolved.

The youth team boss joins Marc Bircham on the sidelines for the televised fixture against West Bromwich Albion on Monday night pending an internal investigation.

Gallen told the BBC that his affiliation with Rangers made him think twice about joining his colleagues Gorman and Ryan.

When asked whether he considered walking away, he said: 'Yes I did. The truth is I have been an QPR a long time as a coach. I was there as a player, but I've been there 13 seasons. I've been there a long time.

'Jim Magilton, I like him a lot. The manager and John Gorman have been brilliant to me and Keith Ryan is a personal friend of mine. It was in my mind (to leave) but I work for QPR and I will support QPR. I want to do well.'

It seems that Gorman and Ryan will both depart should Magilton be found guilty of the alleged head-butt on Buzsáky.

This latest statement follows an initial report this morning and subsequent statement by the club.

He is staying - but it's interesting to see why they're sticking with Jim - is it loyalty, or is it protest??
