LITTLE OVER 24 HOURS before he was due to bring his struggling Queens Park Rangers side to play his former club Manchester United, Mark Hughes has been sacked.

And Harry Redknapp is set to be appointed to the Loftus Road hot-seat by owner Tony Fernandes, according to reports in Britain.

“This decision has been taken after careful consideration by the Board of Directors, following numerous meetings over the last few days,” a statement from the club reads.

“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.”
