Tragedy for QPR youngster

The father of QPR youngster Michael Doughty has been found dead at his home in Lincolnshire.

Nigel Doughty, owner of Nottingham Forest, was 54.

He bought Forest in 1999 for £11m and took over as chairman at the City Ground three years later.

A lifelong fan, he is estimated to have invested more than £100m of his personal fortune in the Championship club.

Michael Doughty, 19, is a product of QPR’s youth system and made his first-team debut in an FA Cup tie against Blackburn last season.
