Since then, McClaren has been working as first team coach at QPR, but has now left to take charge of Derby, after their coach Nigel Clough was sacked following defeat to bitter rivals Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

Derby will be the fifth different side that McClaren has managed after spells with Wolfsburg, Nottingham, Middlesbrough, Twente (twice), and most famously England.

It was with Twente were McClaren has had his biggest success to date, as in his first spell he led the Enschede club to their first ever Eredivisie title.

After this trophy win he quit for German Bundesliga club Wolfsburg, but left after a short period in charge, and has had no success since.
