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.
