Gallen in the dark over QPR future

Next Story

Steve Gallen insists he does not know how long he will remain in temporary charge of QPR but has hit back at suggestions the Coca-Cola Championship club is in chaos.

Manager Jim Magilton is currently suspended by Rangers pending an internal investigation into an incident involving midfielder Akos Buzsaky at Watford last week. Magilton himself has denied any wrongdoing but admits the pair shared "a difference of opinion".

"I don't know what is going to happen," he said. "I just got told last week, and it feels like the longest week ever, that I would be in charge for this game."

Gallen was in joint charge with Marc Bircham for the first time at The Hawthorns as Rangers were denied a headline-grabbing victory at high-flying West Brom by Simon Cox's 94th-minute equaliser - a goal which salvaged a 2-2 draw for the hosts.

But an in-the-dark Gallen pointed to media reports a decision at Loftus Road could be made over the next 48 hours.

He added: "I don't know if I'm charge for Saturday's game (at home to Sheffield United).

"I don't know when I'll find out. I saw something on Sky Sports yesterday and it said the club are meeting with Jim and something will be decided over the next 48 hours.

"I welcome that, definitely. I'm sure people on the outside at QPR want to see things resolved quickly - we all do on the inside."

He added: "I also saw some things during the week about chaos at QPR - that's absolute nonsense. I've not seen any chaos at the training ground."
