Sparky grabs Warnock’s chair

Have your say

NEIL Warnock’s successor as manager of Queens Park Rangers is Mark Hughes, who joins on a two-and-a-half year deal.

The former Manchester City boss was favourite with the bookies as soon as the ex-Sheffield United chief was despatched on Sunday and the Welshman duly signed a contract with the club yesterday.

Hughes has been out of work since leaving Fulham in June and returns to club management with the task of keeping Rangers in the Premier League.

R’s chairman Tony Fernandes said of his new man: “Mark has a proven track record in the Premier League, bringing a wealth of experience at both club and international level. He has a great passion to achieve as a manager and has already been hugely successful in his career.”
