Wycombe Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth has spoken about being linked to two managerial jobs in the Championship.

The 48-year-old is reportedly on the shortlist to take over at both Queens Park Rangers and Blackburn Rovers respectively, which are two clubs that have played a big part in his footballing life.

He began his playing career with Rovers, the team he supports, as a schoolboy before being released by the club on his 18th birthday.

Ainsworth would then go on to have seven successful years with QPR between 2003 and 2010, becoming a fan favourite as well as a caretaker manager on two occasions.

The Wanderers boss has been linked to both outfits after QPR revealed that their current manager, Mark Warburton, will leave his role this summer whilst Tony Mowbray, who is in charge of Rovers, is out of contract in June.

Speaking to the local press on May 3, Ainsworth said: “I’m humbled and flattered to be linked with jobs like that as they are obviously big clubs, but I am at a big club as well, and we’ve got plenty of time to do things here.

“Nothing is going to distract me from these play-offs and for me, it’s all about the play-offs and Wycombe Wanderers.

"I’ve been here before as it’s not like the first time so that’s probably a good thing.

“Flattered as always but I’m cracking on with the play-offs which I’m loving, as it’s going to be a real big occasion (against Milton Keynes).”

The Chairboys’ match against MK at Adams Park on May 5 will kick-off at 7.45pm.
