Ian Holloway

Where is Ian Holloway now?

Ian Holloway retired from playing in 1999 whilst player manager of Bristol Rovers but carried on as manager of the club until 2001 when he joined Queens Park Rangers as manager.

After five years at the West London club he was suspended after speculation that he was about to join Leicester City.

He never joined Leicester but instead joined Plymouth Argyle. After a short spell at Plymouth he did eventually join Leicester but only stayed for one season because he was sacked after his side were relegated from the Championship.

After nearly a year out he joined Blackpool as manager and was successful in getting the team promoted to the Premier League.

Unfortunately their spell in the top tier only lasted for one season as they were relegated on the last day of the season.

In November 2012, Ian Holloway was offered and subsequently accepted the vacant manager’s job at Crystal Palace following the departure of Dougie Freedman.

In May 2013, Holloway guided Palace back to the Premier League after defeating Watford in the play-offs.

Unfortunately after a terrible start to the 2013-14 Premier League season Holloway left the club by mutual respect in November 2013 and was subsequently replaced by Tony Pulis.

After only two months out, Ian Holloway was back in football replacing Steve Lomas in the Millwall hot seat in January 2014.

After saving the club from relegation from the Championship in his first season he was sacked from the club in March 2015 after a difficult second season with the team lying second from bottom after five defeats in six games.

In 2009 Holloway released his book Ollie: The Autobiography

After a period working for Sky Sports as their expert analyst for all of their football league coverage, Holloway returned to management in November 2016 at his former side Queens Park Rangers.
