Mark Hughes has been confirmed as QPR's new manager after signing a two-and-a-half-year contract with the west London club.
The 48-year-old succeeds Neil Warnock, who lost his job on Sunday night after Rangers slumped to within a point of the Barclays Premier League relegation zone.
Hughes appeared already to have been earmarked as Warnock's replacement, with the former Manchester City and Wales boss commencing formal talks with QPR on Monday.
