Darren Ferguson is expected to take over at QPR.
The Daily Mail says Ferguson is ready to become QPR manager at the second time of asking as Jim Magilton braces himself for the sack at Loftus Road.
Ferguson could have had the job in the summer but for deciding to remain loyal to Peterborough, something he was left reflecting on ruefully when the London Road club rewarded two successful promotion campaigns by dismissing him earlier this season.
The son of Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is back on the QPR radar, though, following a dressing room bust-up between Magilton and midfielder Akos Buzsaky that looks certain to end with yet another managerial casualty at Loftus Road.
Though Magilton has vowed to clear his name, Buzsaky is threatening to sue, if an internal investigation finds against him, and has been assured by his team-mates that he has their support.
Former Ipswich manager Magilton is expected to have his fate confirmed over the weekend, with Ferguson already on a shortlist of candidates to take over.
