​QPR confirm Sherwood remains among candidates

Queens Park Rangers will speak to a number of managers about their vacancy.

The Championship side are looking to find a replacement for Steve McClaren, who departed earlier in the month.

The likes of Tim Sherwood and Mark Warburton are being linked with the job, along with Darren Moore.

And QPR director of football Les Ferdinand says they will do a thorough search to find the right candidate.

"We've interviewed quite a few so far and we're just trying to compile a shortlist from the ones we have interviewed," Ferdinand told Sky Sports News at QPR's golf day.

"John Eustace, Matt Gardiner and Chris Ramsey have done a good job, getting us into a position where we are safe this season, so we can probably extend the process a little bit longer.

"We're toying with the idea whether to bring someone in before the end of the season but it all depends on who blows us away.

"Tim is one of those we wanted to speak to, we have spoken to him and there's no talk of pulling himself out of it at the moment. We're still going through a process and hopefully by the end of that process we'll make the right long-term decision for QPR."
