Former Tottenham Hotspur head coach Tim Sherwood has been linked with the vacant Queens Park Rangers job.

According to Sky Sports News, Sherwood is among the list of candidates to take over from Steve McClaren at QPR.

McClaren was sacked on Monday following the club's 2-1 defeat to Bolton Wanderers this past weekend. The Hoops, who currently occupy 17th place on the English Championship standings, sit eight points above the relegation zone.

The former England head coach was shown the door following a run of five games without a win, this after the club recorded a surprise 1-0 victory over Leeds United.

QPR suffered seven defeats in succession before the win over Leeds which only sugarcoated the club's ultimate demise under McClaren's tutelage.

Sherwood, 50, last coached Aston Villa in 2015. His tenure at the club lasted a mere eight months.

QPR will be back in Championship action with a tough match away to leaders Norwich City on Saturday 6 April. You can see live coverage of the match on Fox Sports 1 from 13h30 CAT.
