    • SACKED! QPR finally fire Hughes as Redknapp is handed reins (but not until after trip to United)

       

      Fury: Fans turned on Hughes following the defeat to Southampton at home

      Fury: Fans turned on Hughes following the defeat to Southampton at home


       

       

       

      Mark Hughes has been sacked as manager of QPR - and Harry Redknapp has been appointed as his replacement.

      Hughes's assistant manager Mark Bowen will take Rangers, winless and rock-bottom of the Barclays Premier League, to Old Trafford tomorrow with former Tottenham boss Redknapp in the stands.

      Redknapp will take formal charge of the team on Sunday.

      Hughes's position has been hanging in the balance all week after defeat to Southampton at Loftus Road, a match dubbed 'El Sackico'.

      The former Manchester United striker had been preparing his team for the clash at Manchester United with the expectation that he would be on the touchline.

      However, owner Tony Fernandes finally snapped this morning, showing Hughes, who had replaced, Neil Warnock the door after 10 months.

      A club statement this morning said the Rangers board were now looking to appoint a replacement as soon as possible, however Sportsmail is able to confirm that Redknapp is the new manager.

      The club's 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 boss men: Redknapp (left) will take charge on Sunday, while Bowen (right) will be in charge of the QPR team for the trip to Manchester United tomorrow

       

      'The Board of Directors wish to thank Mark for his commitment, hard work and dedication in his ten 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.'

      Former QPR winger Richard Langley told BBC Radio 5live: 'The frustration has been brewing and the main thing is they've got such a talented squad at the moment and the results haven't been coming so you can understand the frustrations at the club. They haven't been playing as a team.'

      Hughes has been walking a tightrope since QPR lost at Arsenal on October 27. Fernandes was set to sack him then but had a change of heart and has tried to support him.

      They have not won all season but have an easier run of fixtures coming - and a new manager will be licking his lips at that prospect.

      More to follow....

    • Was hoping this would be a cakewalk and they can bang 4, 5 goals in but suddenly this match just became more difficult for United with the new manager syndrome ... Damn.

    • Unlikely, I see them coming back up if Harry is appointed...

      Suddenly this match becomes difficult as the QPR players will want to impress their new boss... So they will run and play harder in this match as compare to usual...

      Manchester United v Queens Park Rangers: Squad sheets

       

       

      Sir Alex Ferguson has seen Queens Park Rangers remove Mark Hughes on the eve of their trip to Old Trafford and now believes even more that a win against the bottom club should be regulation, especially as there is not yet a Harry Redknapp or any other permanent successor to provide the 'bounce' factor that can often lift players after a managerial sacking. Instead, Mark Bowen and Eddie Niedzwiecki, Hughes' long-term lieutenants, take charge against United, who have lost their last two in all competitions. This all points to a home rout.

      Match pointers

      • United have won 10 and lost none of their past 13 meetings with QPR in league and cup

       

      • Mark Hughes was the manager in the first Premier League game where a player scored a hat-trick against United (David Bentley in a 4-3 win for Blackburn in February 2006)

       

      • United are yet to draw a league game this season, only four teams in Premier League history have not drawn any of their first 13 matches (including Bolton last season)

       

      • QPR have taken just three points from the past 57 available in Premier League away matches

       

      • United have the best conversion rate this season, scoring with 14.9% of their shots while QPR (7.6%) have the worst
