Mark Hughes has been sacked as manager of Queens Park Rangers and will imminently be replaced by former Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp, The Telegraph reports.

QPR have yet to pick up a Premier League victory, after 12 games of the season, and have only accumulated four points, sitting bottom of the table. Chairman Tony Fernandes decided to make the change the day before the R’s travel to Old Trafford, a game which Redknapp will be in attendance for. Redknapp has been out of a job since Spurs took the decision to sack him in the summer and replace him with Andre Villas-Boas.

A QPR statement read: “Queens Park Rangers Football Club have 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 statement followed on by thanking Hughes for his commitment during his ten-month reign at Loftus Road, but the circumstances the club were in left the board ‘with very little choice but to make a change’. Mark Bowen and Eddie Niedzwiecki will take charge against Manchester United on Saturday. QPR redeveloped their squad in the summer, with Hughes bringing in big names such as Julio Cesar and Esteban Granero, but it has failed to work in his favour.
