As revealed by Sportsmail earlier in May, McClaren had agreed to take over at the helm and succeed Ian Holloway ahead of next season.

The R’s ended the 2017/18 campaign with three wins in nine to finish 16th. 

‘It’s great to be back – and it’s a challenge that I’m excited by,’ McClaren said upon his appointment as boss.

‘I must admit that I’ve followed the club closely over the last five years, because of the three months I had here. 

‘From the outside, I’ve seen the progress, work and changes that have gone on – especially over the last two years – in streamlining the squad and getting the budget down. The Board and owners deserve credit for that

‘The introduction of younger players has been a breath of fresh air and it’s exciting for the future.’
