Caretaker manager Mick Harford has hinted he is interested in taking full-time charge of Queens Park Rangers. Harford, 48, was placed in temporary charge at Loftus Road following the sacking of John Gregory on Monday and the former Nottingham Forest and Rotherham boss has suggested he would like the role on a permanent basis. "I spoke to John at length and told him the chairman had offered me the job as caretaker manager. John told me to go for it and to look after the club," Harford told the R's official website. "It's a shame that John has gone because he is a good man and a good manager who put a good infrastructure in place. "It's a good opportunity for me, but in difficult circumstances. I have been in this position before at Wimbledon and Nottingham Forest. "I know what the situation is - if you win games then you get an opportunity to manage the football club. It's all about winning and that's what I am here to do. "We came in this morning and the chairman was here. He asked me if I was ready for the task and I told him 'Of course I am.'"
