QPR manager Ian Holloway has claimed Graeme Murty was “out of order” to speak about potentially signing Sean Goss on a permanent contract for Rangers – but Holloway’s rant is nothing more than a manager feeling the pressure.
“I’d rather talk to Graeme about that myself because he is out of order talking about my player,” Holloway said as quoted by the Daily Record after Murty said he would like to keep the player to Ibrox beyond the end of the season but admitted QPR were unlikely to want to sell.
When Murty spoke about his hope of keeping Goss he was nothing but respectful towards QPR and Holloway – as he has been everyone he spoken about during his time at Rangers – and Holloway lashing out is a manager who is under huge pressure at Loftus Road as he tries to avoid relegation to League One.
The Gers’ senior man even acknowledged QPR’s likely reluctance to sell the 22-year-old while commenting such situations can always change in football in a short period of time and someone with Holloway’s tenure in the game will know that as well as anyone.
Holloway even said Goss was likely to come back and play for QPR after his form for the Gers which begs the question why the 22-year-old former Manchester United kid hadn’t kicked a ball for QPR this season.
With QPR sitting 16th in the Championship, Holloway should have bigger concerns than the Rangers manager giving huge credit to one of his players and giving him a platform to perform that wasn’t provided by Holloway at Loftus Road.
