Hart Rejects Spurs For QPR

Propsective boss Paul Hart has reportedly turned down a coaching role at Tottenham Hotspur to take over at Queens Park Rangers.

The departure of Jim Magilton was announced this evening along with his assistant John Gorman, allowing Hart and Mick Harford to take on the club until the end of the season.

Hart will be the eighth manager under Flavio Briatore and his fellow investors if reports in the press are to be believes, with various outlets now confirming his new role.

In his most recent role Hart kept Portsmouth in the top flight, but after a poor start to the current campaign under constantly changing ownership he fell by the wayside at Fratton Park.

In 30 games for Pompey, Hart won nine, most recently the important win over Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux, a result that could yet prove crucial for their survival aspirations.

He has a very different task on his hands in W12, guiding Rangers to the playoffs and the Premier League being the lofty ambition of a club that has stuttered in recent times.

I know we have our problems at Hillsborough but, man, your club is WEIRD :)

Dont really blame him for turning down a minor role at Spurs where he would have been 3/4th in charge at best for the job with you. He would obviously want to be a NO1 after being treated badly in every other manager role he has had. Im sorry to see magilton go as I thought he was doing a pretty decent job. I remember him well as a player with Oxford many years ago, after he was released by Liverpool. very good player, who always gave his all. Should Paul Hart get the job, I think he will be an inspired choice, but surely Briatore has got to show faith in one man and give him time and the recourses to to the job for more that a few months.

Good luck Harty...very under-rated manager!

In Paul Hart you have a very good motivator. At Portsmouth, he has managed to get a team play for the cause of the club. It was a pity that he had to leave; but we needed a change in order to get more points. I wish you all the luck. The man is decent enough for the post.

Interesting comments I must say - fill me with more hope than despair!

so how long will you lot give this one?

He has a contract until the end of the season. I expect him to stay for the length of his contract. Whether he stays longer is dependent on his success rate and whether there are any "quality" managers available come the summer, cos there sure are none right now!

Paul HArt won over most of the fans at Fratton Park and as Pompey Malta said he was able to motivate the team really well - He'll certainly get the players to roll their sleeves up and fight for Rangers .. but don't expect any inspired substitutions .. you'll be screaming the obvious from the terraces long before Paul Hart notiuces what needs to be done... still he will have Mick Harford to help him (apart from Brian Kidd for a little while) he had no help at Pompey.. Good Luck Harty and hope Rangers can (at least) reach the play-offs..

Cheers Chix - to be honest most managers haven't spotted the obvious change from time to time.. and one man's obvious change is another man's disaster!
