QPR OFFICIAL STATEMENT - February 13, 2006

QPR Chairman Gianni Paladini would like to state that he will NOT be employing John Gregory on a consultancy basis.Reports in today's Evening Standard wrongly claim that Paladini is 'hoping' to bring the former Aston Villa and Derby manager to Loftus Road.Paladini would like to correct readers and supporters alike, to ensure they are given accurate information on this topic.He said: "I don't know where these rumours surface from. Just when you think a win and a great performance will go a long way to making people happy, something is dragged up."I will not have these rumours getting in the way of Gary Waddock's task of preparing the team for tomorrow's game against Crystal Palace."I want him to know that he's in charge of team affairs right now and that I'm not looking anywhere else. I have spoken to Gary and reassured him that is the case." http://www.qpr.premiumtv.co.uk/page/News/NewsDetail/0,,10373~782668,00.html

TEAMTALK - Wolves Pair Return to Wolves
"Loan pair return to Wolves
QPR boss Gary Waddock has sent back on-loan duo Leon Clarke and Keith Lowe to Wolves after just one appearance each.The pair were brought in on a month's loan by former boss Ian Holloway - who was placed on gardening leave last week - and played in the 2-0 defeat at Leeds on February 4, which was Holloway's last in charge.But caretaker-manager Waddock - whose first game in charge ended in a 1-0 win over Millwall on Saturday - informed striker Clarke and defender Lowe they were not part of his plans."As far as I'm aware, Clarke and Lowe have gone back to Wolves," Waddock said. "I didn't bring in the loan players."I want to give the players who are contracted and committed to QPR a chance. After that, I will make up my mind which players will be involved in the first-team group."

The Latest from Molineux
Disappointment At Early End To Loan
Glenn Hoddle has admitted his disappointment at the early end to Leon Clarke and Keith Lowe's loan spells at QPR.
The pair returned to Molineux this morning after caretaker manager at Loftus Road, Gary Waddock, decided he wanted to work with permanent staff and not loan players. They had played just one game.
Due to loan rules, the duo will not be eligible to play for Wolves until after February 28th.
"It's very disappointing for the players," said Glenn.
"I spoke to Gary (Waddock) on Friday and he told me that he wants to go with the players who are already there and he knows.
"The lads obviously aren't going to play down there and so it was best for them to come back and train with us.
"The rules mean, though, that they can't play for us at either first team or reserve level for another couple of weeks, which is difficult for them.
"We'll make a call and see if there's any way around that, so they can at least have a run out in the reserves, but I don't know if it will make any difference.
"The two lads have taken it fairly well, they were bright and bubbly this morning, but it isn't the best situation for them to be in, especially when it's through no fault of their own."

Express & Echo -13 February 2006
Exeter City director of football Steve Perryman has revealed he would like to be considered for the vacant manager's job at Queens Park Rangers.The Championship side are on the look-out for a new boss after placing Ian Holloway on gardening leave following speculation that he was being lined up for the Leicester City job.Perryman hinted that his future may lie elsewhere recently and has never ruled out a return to management. And now he has signalled that he would be interested in taking over at Loftus Road.Perryman admitted he had staged talks with the West Londoners in 2001 shortly before Holloway got the job. We had talks and I was confident I would have kept the club in the First Division," said Perryman."QPR are a much more attractive proposition now than they were then."If they are prepared to look under the surface for someone with strong ideas - then I'm a good proposition."I've had very favourable results managing against the likes of Wenger, Scolari and Queiroz from my time in Japan and have worked in all levels of English football - name someone else who's done that."I don't need a big budget and don't need big players."
