Ex-QPR boss considers surprise return amid Ainsworth woes

Former QPR manager Michael Beale wants to return to the club, according to Alan Nixon, despite the R’s continuous troubles under current manager Gareth Ainsworth.

Last season, QPR led the Championship table at one time. They were soaring high under Beale until he went for Rangers in November, when QPR appointed Neil Critchley for 12 games before firing him and bringing in Ainsworth in February.


Since then, Ainsworth has won just five of his 25 games in command. His team is now 22nd in the

Championship league and face relegation from the second division.

However, Nixon confirmed this morning on his Patreon that Beale wants to return to QPR. Nixon says that Beale wants to return to England after being released by Rangers, but that he must make atonement first.

Should QPR re-sign Beale?

Beale left many disappointed when he left the club last season, giving his entire loyalty speech after turning down Wolves, only to leave for Ibrox shortly after.

Many would agree, though, that Beale would be a vast improvement over Ainsworth. Beale demonstrated excellent tactical nous during his brief stint at QPR, and his time with Rangers will undoubtedly have made him a better and more rounded coach, despite his dismissal.


He’s an option for QPR, but Ainsworth’s position appears to be secure for the time being. If Ainsworth was on the verge of being fired, the club would have made a managerial change before the break, therefore it may now be a question of QPR waiting until the next international break to potentially re-hire Beale.
