Ex-QPR boss Holloway slaughters sacked McClaren

Former QPR boss Ian Holloway has no sympathy for Steve McClaren after his dismissal yesterday.

The ex-Newcastle United manager took over from Holloway last summer and the 56-year-old, whose last managerial post was at Loftus Road, did not hold back following McClaren's dismissal.

"He took my job," Holloway told talkSPORT. "I still had another year left at the club. I'm still being paid by them now.

"He was talking to the chairman [Amit Bhatia] while I was in the job, saying what he'd do. He hasn't been able to do that.

"What goes around comes around. Where the hell are the young lads I was told to bring through? [Ebere] Eze isn't playing, what about [Ryan] Manning? They're not playing.

"I was told to promote the youth and bring people in who cared about the club, it's not happening. He had my babies and took my kids."
