EXCLUSIVE: QPR eye club legend as Warburton faces axe

Queens Park Rangers are set to axe Mark Warburton and once again try and lure club legend Gareth Ainsworth, we understand.

Ainsworth is performing miracles at Wycombe, with the Chairboys currently five points clear at the top of League One.

The 46-year-old has rebuffed numerous approaches this season, with both Sunderland and Lincoln failing to land him, but now QPR are set to make a strong push for their former favourite.

Ainsworth scored 36 goals in 141 league appearances for QPR in a seven-year stay at Loftus Road.

As for former Brentford boss Warburton, he was only appointed in the summer, and after a bright start, they have lost four out of their last five and are now ready to make a change.
