Les Ferdinand steps down from QPR director role

Les Ferdinand has stepped down from his position director of football at Queens Park Rangers.

The 56-year-old had held that position since the 2014-15 season when the Hoops got relegated from the Premier League.

QPR have been in the Championship ever since then and narrowly avoided relegation to League One last season, finishing in 20th position, six points clear of the relegation zone.

Ferdinand was associated with QPR as a player, scoring 90 goals in 184 appearances between 1986 and 1995.

“This has not been an easy decision,” Ferdinand told the club website.

“My life is football, I love football and I want to stay in football but I do feel this is the right time for me to step down from my position here.

“Everyone knows how special Queens Park Rangers is to me and it has been a privilege to be back at the club.

“There have been challenging times and I have had to make some very difficult decisions but every decision I have made has been with the best interests of the club at heart.”

QPR’s poor season in 2022-23 saw the departure of manager Michael Beale to Rangers after just 21 games in charge at Loftus Road.

Neil Critchley succeeded him but was dismissed in February after 12 games and was replaced by Gareth Ainsworth.
