Former Nottingham Forest boss Steve Cotterill has joined QPR manager Harry Redknapp's backroom team in a short-term coaching role. A QPR spokesman said it was "an open-ended arrangement" with no fixed timescale.

"Steve Cotterill has just come in on a short-term deal to help us out. He's bright and has got something to offer," said Redknapp.

"He'll spend his time with the rest of the backroom staff. We need as many people helping us out as possible."
