Redknapp lined up to replace Hughes as QPR boss

Daily Echo: Mark Hughes Mark Hughes

QPR have terminated the contract of manager Mark Hughes following the club's disastrous start to the Premier League season.

The west London side are without a win after their opening 12 games of the campaign and were left rooted to the bottom of the division following their 3-1 home defeat against Saints last Saturday.

Former Southampton manager Harry Redknapp has been approached to take over at Loftus Road, but Mark Bowen & Eddie Niedzwiecki will take charge of the R's trip to Manchester United tomorrow.

A statement from QPR read: "Queens Park Rangers Football Club has today 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.

''The club will be making a further announcement in due course.''

this was inevitable!
Obviously done a deal on the £5 million payoff.

Doesnt change all the cr*p that he's signed with no resale value.

He's done a Harry to them and guess who will be replacing him?

Hope fernandes has REALLY deep pockets!

The dreaded vote of confidence strikes again. Not that he was actually given a vote of confidence 3 days ago, but you know what I mean.

So, RDM to take over?

In years to come, when we're beating Barcelona, we'll look back at the QPR fixture of last weekend and say, with a smile, "Ludicrous as it sounds, there were rumours that Nigel would have been sacked if we'd lost it. Of course, that didn't happen and the rest is history. I think it was Mark Hughes who ended up getting the boot."

I hope you are right but a part of me thinks you have started your weekend drinking session very early.

Good idea :-)

Good luck Harry. A good manager and tactician, QPR should now get a few points and climb up the table.
