QPR sack Mark Hughes and will appoint Harry Redknapp as manager
The writing was on the wall for Mark Hughes after last Saturday’s 3-1 home defeat against Southampton and QPR sacked the Welshman on Friday, just 24 hours ahead of their Premier League match at Old Trafford.

Hughes will walk away with a hefty compensation fee after having his contract terminated and it appears that Rangers will waste little time in appointing Harry Redknapp as the new manager at Loftus Road, with the former Tottenham boss briefed with keeping QPR in the top flight.
A QPR club statement read: “Queens Park Rangers Football Club has today [Friday] terminated the contract of manager Mark Hughes with immediate effect.
This decision has been taken after careful consideration by the Board of Directors, following numerous meetings over the last few days. The Board of Directors wish to thank Mark for his commitment, hard work and dedication in his 10 months in charge.
Mark has shown integrity and professionalism throughout his time here, but ultimately the circumstances we find ourselves in have left the Board of Directors with very little choice but to make a change. The Board will now be working actively to put a new managerial structure in place as soon as possible.
Mark Bowen and Eddie Niedzwiecki will take charge of the R’s trip to Manchester United in the Barclays Premier League on Saturday afternoon. The club will be making a further announcement in due course.”
