QPR are looking to reinforce their back-room team after seeing Steve McClaren leave to take the reins at Derby County.

A move for Ferdinand has been mooted, with the former England international still highly-regarded in west London from his playing days - during which he netted 91 times for the club.

Ferdinand was, however, taken to Tottenham Hotspur - another of his former clubs - by Redknapp and it would be difficult to tempt him away from Premier League life at White Hart Lane.

Redknapp said in the Fulham Chronicle: "I think he's well in at Tottenham now, but QPR would be close to his heart."

While a position for Ferdinand is doubtful, Redknapp has opened the door for Gallen to join his ranks - with a man who made more than 400 appearances for QPR over the course of two spells having been relieved of his youth team duties during Mark Hughes' tenure.

He added: "I would like to get him involved with the kids here because he's a real QPR man. There's got to be a place at the club for people like him.

"I did it at Tottenham. I brought Les Ferdinand out of the wilderness if you like, and Tim Sherwood too. They've done a great job at Tottenham with the young players.

"It's good to do that and give these lads a chance. This is Kevin Gallen's club, so I would love to have him back."

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
