Aston Villa boss Gerrard unsurprised Beale wanted by QPR

Aston Villa assistant head coach Michael Beale is in the running for the QPR manager's job.

The Birmingham Mail says Beale is the even-money bookies' favourite to land the QPR job. Beale, 41, was on Charlton's shortlist previously but the Addicks are set to announce Swindon boss Ben Garner as their new manager.

Championship side QPR, meanwhile, parted company with Mark Warburton at the end of last season after his contract ended. Steven Gerrard's right-hand man Beale is now leading the bookies' shortlist.

Beale, from London, joined Villa alongside Gerrard back in November having followed the manager down from Ibrox.

On managerial interest in his right-hand man, Gerrard said: “I'll never stand in anyone's way who doesn't want to be a part of this journey, that's for sure. That goes for staff or players."
