David O'Leary to QPR?


Express- Paul Hetherington -QPR TARGET O'LEARY
DAVID O’LEARY has emerged as the main threat to QPR caretaker-manager Gareth Ainsworth being installed on a permanent basis.
Former Leeds United and Aston Villa boss O’Leary is firmly in the frame to succeed the sacked Iain Dowie at Loftus Road.

But O’Leary’s experience, style and availability appeal to ambitious Rangers – and have made him a serious contender for the job.
QPR are one of the richest clubs in the world in terms of the wealth of their owners – Formula One bosses Bernie Ecclestone and Briatore, plus multi-billionaire Lakshmi Mittal, who has a 20 per cent stake in the club.
Mittal has been described as the fourth richest man in the world.

With that amount of financial clout, Rangers have become one of the most appealing clubs in the country, particularly to high profile, out-of-work managers. Express

O'Leary, 50, hasn't been in management since terminating his contract at Villa Park in July 2006 following criticism of then chairman Doug Ellis. People
