Sherwood backed for QPR job

Temporary QPR manager Chris Ramsey says he would be happy to reunite with Tim Sherwood at Loftus Road and admits he is in constant contact with the former Tottenham boss.

Sherwood (below) worked with both Ramsey and QPR's director of football Les Ferdinand at White Hart Lane and is the clear favourite to replace Harry Redknapp, who resigned on Tuesday.

"It's been well documented Les will be holding a series of interviews and I don't know anything more than that," Ramsey said.

"Tim and I are good friends outside of football so we speak regularly.

"Tim gave me an opportunity, along with Tottenham, to coach in the Premier League so I would be happy to work with him. I think he is very good at what he does.

"It's down to the owners to decide who is going to be best for the club.

"They have the club's best interests at heart and know what they want to do long term."

Ramsey has been put in temporary charge, together with Ferdinand, for Saturday's home game against Southampton and admits he would also like to be considered.

"Any coach when you start off, you always dream about coaching in the Premier League," Ramsey said. "You couldn't say, 'I don't want to be a manager of a Premier League club'. Now I've got to this point in my career, I'm happy to be here, happy to involved with a club like QPR.

"Walking out tomorrow and sitting next to Ronald Koeman in the Premier League is a proud moment for my family."

QPR chairman Tony Fernandes adjusted Ferdinand's role from head of football operations to director of football following Redknapp's departure.
