Queens Park Rangers have sacked manager Mark Hughes after the club’s winless start to the season, with reports saying former spurs boss Harry Redknapp will step in as his replacement.

The West London club currently sit bottom of the Premier League with just four points from 12 games. Chairman Tony Fernandes has vocally backed Hughes in the past on Twitter, saying just last week that “For the one millionth time,” Hughes sacking, “wont’ be happening”. But a home defeat against fellow strugglers Southampton at the weekend appears to have been the final straw, with the club dismissing the 49 year old after ten months in the job.

Redknapp is rumoured to take over the role in Sunday, and will be watching the team from the stands when they take on Manchester United tomorrow. The 65 year old has been out of work since he parted ways with Tottenham in June. The Ukraine football federation are believed to have held talks with Redknapp about taking over the national team earlier this week.
