Hughes made favourite for Rangers job

William Hill go 1/5 about the former Fulham and Manchester City manager

Mark Hughes has been made the bookmakers’ favourite to be named the next manager of Queens Park Rangers after the club parted company with Neil Warnock on Sunday evening.

“Sadly, our recent run of poor form has seen us slip alarmingly down the table and the Board felt it was the right time to make a change,” said QPR Chairman Tony Fernandes.

“Neil has acted with honesty, professionalism and integrity throughout his time at the Club, and I would personally like to thank him for his significant contribution to QPR over the last 22 months.”

Prior to the announcement rumours were rife on social networking site Twitter that Mark Hughes was already in line to take over at Loftus Road, leading Sky Bet to introduce him to their next QPR manager betting market as the 1/5 favourite.

But that price didn’t last long and Hughes drifted out to odds of 6/4 with the bookmaker before shortening back into 1/5.

William Hill also go 1/5 about the former Fulham and Manchester City manager, with Rafa Benitez second favourite at 7/2 followed by Gianfranco Zola at odds of 4/1.

“QPR have made a habit of parting company with managers in recent seasons and the new incumbent will be well advised to keep his CV close at hand,” said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

The club has stated that the search for a new manager will begin immediately and that an announcement will be made in due course.
