QPR are poised to make former Portsmouth boss Paul Hart their next manager.
The 56-year-old, who parted company with the Barclays Premier League side last month, is tipped to replace Jim Magilton.
QPR chairman Flavio Briatore is set to make Hart the sixth permanent manager of his two-year reign at Loftus Road after confirming last night that Magilton had left his post "by mutual consent".
Magilton was suspended last week after being accused of headbutting midfielder Akos Buzsaky following the 3-1 defeat by Watford in the Coca-Cola Championship.
Caretaker manager Steve Gallen is expected to lead the side against Sheffield United this weekend before reverting to his role as youth team boss next week, when Hart is expected to join the Championship club.
