John Gregory insists he does not fear for his job following the change of ownership at Queens Park Rangers.

Formula One duo Flavio Briatore and Bernie Ecclestone have had an offer for the Championship club recommended by the board.

It has led to speculation that Gregory's days are numbered at Loftus Road, with Gianluca Vialli and Martin Allen linked with the role.

But Gregory, whose side have endured a difficult start to the new campaign, is not worried about the impact of the new owners.

He feels his four-year tenure as Aston Villa manager under Doug Ellis stands him in good stead for the future.

Not worried

"I worked for Doug Ellis at Aston Villa and after every defeat I was expected to be gone by Monday morning," Gregory told Sky Sports.

"I think after six months we hit a bit of a dodgy spell, and we lost three out of five or something, and drew the other two.

"It was supposed to be my last chance in the next game and four years later I was still there.

"I didn't worry about it then, and I certainly won't worry about it now."
