Strange Ranger Holloway keeps his mind on the job - John Ashdown

Copy from Football Unlimited of 06/02/2006.

"He's got to stop letting speculation get to him - you've just got to focus on your job," said Ian Holloway of his centre-half Danny Shittu, who was the subject of several bids during the transfer window. With rumours suggesting that the QPR manager may this week take over at managerless Leicester, he was certainly heeding his own advice.

The Bristolian was his usual self after watching his side slip to a third consecutive defeat, picking the bones out of another colourful week at Loftus Road. Five players were given their debuts on Saturday, the result of a desperate scramble to produce a side capable of competing at Elland Road. Training for a new system went ahead on Friday without a goalkeeper. "I was very proud of my Queens Park Strangers side," he said. "I've never known anything like the last couple of days."

If Holloway has one eye on the Leicester vacancy he did not show it, preferring to concentrate on the need for English lessons for his new Polish left-back and his desire to see several senior first-team members out of the treatment room.
