QPR ready to offer ex-Tottenham chief Tim Sherwood a return to dugout if struggles continue
QPR are ready to ask Tim Sherwood to become their boss if Mark Warburton fails to turn round results.
Sherwood is a close friend of club supremo Les Ferdinand.
The former Tottenham and Aston Villa manager is working as a TV pundit and has turned down other chances to go back into the dugout.
Sherwood has been out of football since a season at Swindon, where he was director of football but left when they were relegated.
But he showed his potential at Spurs, famously giving Harry Kane his big break and also talking old pal Ferdinand into joining his team.
Sherwood had a bitter-sweet spell at Villa, which ended after he took them to the FA Cup final.
Since then he has been on the fringes of the game but friends say he would take up a challenge if it was right and he could trust his bosses.
A major stumbling block could be his £1million-a-year pay demands, though.
Sherwood is pals with Chris Ramsey and could form part of a new management team if Ferdinand can fund it.
Rangers have had a flat season under Warburton and are just above the relegation zone in the Championship.
They are also trying to do a deal for Sheffield Wednesday striker Jordan Rhodes.
He is a free agent in the summer and could leave this month.
Ferdinand will free up funds for a goalscorer and Rhodes has a proven record at the level.
Owls owner Dejphon Chansiri stopped him leaving before by asking for a big fee.
But with his contract running out, that will be impossible this time.
