Interim Gills boss would 'love full time role'

Interim Gillingham boss Peter Taylor says he would love to do the job full-time. The former England Under-21 manager, who also led the Gills to promotion more than a decade ago, said he was happy to lead the team on a temporary basis.

But he said that he hoped to do well enough to be given a permanent deal. Taylor left Gillingham to manage Premier League Leicester after winning the Division Two in 2000.

He said only the offer to manage a top-tier club would have led to his departure, and he hoped Gills fans would welcome him back. The Gills have lost 8 out of their last 11 games.
