Collins rejects R's approach

12 October 2007 09:28
Hibernian boss John Collins has revealed he has turned down an approach from QPR to become the Championship club's new manager. The 39-year-old Scot has been in charge of Hibs for 12 months and led the Edinburgh club to their first piece of silverware in 16 years when they won last season's Scottish League Cup. However, he will not be moving to London to join the R's, who are on the lookout for a new manager after sacking former boss John Gregory earlier this month. "There was something, but it was just a phone call. But that's done, it's in the past and it won't be happening," he told The Scotsman. "I have a job to do here and I intend to see it through. "I never broke a contract during my playing career and I've no intention of doing so now." New Rangers owners and F1 magnates Bernie Ecclestone and Flavio Briatore are seeking a high-profile appointment in a bid to turn around the fortunes of the ailing Championship club.
