QPR add Broomfield and Cotterill to Redknapp's staff

The 65-year-old's chief scout from his time at Portsmouth and Tottenham once again heads the search for players, while the former Nottingham Forest boss signs a short-term deal
Harry Redknapp has added Steve Cotterill and Ian Broomfield to his backroom staff at QPR.

Former Nottingham Forest boss Cotterill has signed a short-term coaching contract with the club, while Broomfield has been appointed chief scout having worked with the 65-year-old at Portsmouth and Tottenham previously.

Broomfield told the club's official website: “I’ve worked closely with Harry for a number of years now, so it’s great to link up with him again, the opportunity was ideal.

“A scouting job is 24/7 and I’ve never really had a break for 25 years, but I left Spurs in September and I’m refreshed and looking forward to working back in football.

“When I spoke to the hierarchy at the club about the plans they have to take QPR forward, it sounded like the kind of project I wanted to be part of.”
