Hughes hanging on

Published 2 Comments

Mark Hughes has met with QPR chief executive Philip Beard as speculation continues to mount about the Welshman's position at the London club.

There have been claims that Hughes' 10-month reign would be terminated by chairman Tony Fernandes this week after the club's wretched start to the season. Rangers are rock bottom of the Barclays Premier League, five points behind 17th place Reading, who have a match in hand.

Hughes met with Beard - the man Fernandes sent to fire previous manager Neil Warnock. QPR sources have insisted it was "business as usual" at the struggling club, and that Hughes remained in charge despite speculation on Twitter that the former Chelsea striker had been sacked.
