Blackburn Rovers striker Yakubu Aiyegbeni is believed to have been at the centre of Neil Warnock’s dismissal from Queens Park Rangers on Sunday.
Warnock is understood to have disagreed with owner Tony Fernandes over several targets. One of the players earmarked by Warnock is believed to have been the Rovers striker, but Fernandes would not countenance a pursuit. It seems the pair had met at the end of last week to discuss transfer business, but Warnock left the meeting feeling that his position had become untenable. So far Rangers have signed only Manchester United striker Federico Macheda on loan and it appears Fernandez prefers this type of arrangement rather than straightforward purchases.
