During the 2006–07 English football season, Queens Park Rangers F.C. competed in the Football League Championship.

Season summary[edit]

On 28 June 2006, Holloway was put on Gardening leave and eventually left for Plymouth Argyle and Gary Waddock was appointed full-time manager.[1] On 20 September 2006, after a poor set of results had left QPR bottom of the table, Waddock was replaced by John Gregory.[2] Waddock did, however, stay at the club as assistant manager. Gregory's appointment caused a schism among QPR fans, some of whom saw Gregory's friendship with controversial chairman Gianni Paladini as a conflict of interest. After a decent start with successive victories over Hull City and Southampton, Rangers form dipped before winning three on the bounce (including a victory at (then) league leaders Cardiff City). Unfortunately, results did not continue to improve, and relegation looked a distinct possibility for Gregory's men. However, following a fine late season run, QPR beat Cardiff 1–0 at Loftus Road on 21 April 2007 to secure their Championship status for another year.
