Fleming in the frame for QPR coaching role

Curtis Fleming is in the frame to join Ian Holloway’s coaching staff at QPR.

Holloway is keen to add another first-team coach to his backroom team and Rangers are in talks with former Republic of Ireland defender Fleming, who is assistant boss at Hartlepool United and has had similar roles at Bolton and Crystal Palace.

The Dublin-raised Fleming, 48, made 266 appearances during 10 years at Middlesbrough and also had spells at Palace and Birmingham City during a playing career which started at St Patrick’s.

He has also had coaching positions at Middlesbrough, Livingston and Derry City.
