Mark Hughes has been sacked as manager of Queens Park Rangers, with Harry Redknapp expected to take charge at Loftus Road after Saturday’s trip to Manchester United.

Hughes has been dismissed with the club bottom of the Premier League table and without a win this season.

It is understood that former Tottenham Hotspur boss Redknapp will take charge of the team on Sunday.

A spokesman for his management company said: “Contact has been made between QPR and us as Harry Redknapp’s representatives. Talks will be beginning shortly.”

Hughes, who was due to face the media on Friday ahead of Saturday’s trip to Old Trafford before the Hoops confirmed his contract had been terminated, took charge at Loftus Road in January 2012.

“The circumstances we find ourselves in have left the board of directors with very little choice but to make a change,” read a club statement.

“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 club for the trip to Old Trafford on Saturday.

“This decision has been taken after careful consideration by the board of directors, following numerous meetings over the last few days,” the statement added.

“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.”

The statement added that the club’s board of directors would be “working actively to put a new managerial structure in place as soon as possible”.
