Fernandes hails new Rangers recruit

Published Add your comment

QPR chairman Tony Fernandes has hailed the appointment of new technical director Mike Rigg as one of the most important since he took over at Loftus Road.

The 43-year-old has held a similar role at Manchester City since June 2008, but has opted to leave the position in order to link up with QPR and work once more with boss Mark Hughes, who he worked alongside at City, Blackburn and with the Welsh national team. His main role will be to oversee player acquisition at all ages.

Fernandes told the club's official website: "He is, along with Mark (Hughes), the most important appointment I will make as chairman of QPR. I said when I arrived that I wanted to focus on the youth set-up and I believe the appointment of Mike is very key."
