Further to the departure of Neil Warnock on Sunday night, this lunchtime, Mark Hughes has been confirmed as the new QPR manager.

Hughes has been given a two and a half year contract and will set about his task immediately, taking a training session with his new charges this afternoon.

In the traditional pose of a new manager, that is, holding the blue & white scarf of Queens Park Rangers, Hughes announed: 'It's a great feeling to be back in football and to be the Manager of QPR.'

Hughes' last job was a short-lived tenure at local rivals Fulham, which was perhaps not his happiest moment in management! His win rate there was a disappointing 33% but he did earn them a Europa League spot via the Fair Play League.

About the situation he comes into, with QPR lying 17th in the Premier League and without a win since beating Stoke in November 2011, Hughes said: 'I am fully aware of the challenge in the short and long term and I am genuinely excited about the ambition of the owners.'

This latter comment should go some way to relieve the anxiety felt by some fans after Hughes' interview on Sky Sports News last night, when he suggested he had to think about the ambition of the Club to ensure it met his own!

Reflecting on the passion of us fans, Hughes also acknowledge the immediacy of improving our League position and added: 'Beyond that the future is very bright and fills me with great enthusiasm.'

Hughes brings with him not only a wealth of Premier League experience, having successfully managed Blackburn and Manchester City before heading to Fulham. His management team of Mark Bowen (Assistant Manager), Eddie Niedzwiecki (First Team Coach) and Kevin Hitchcock (Goalkeeping Coach) will join Hughes at QPR.

Good luck with your appointment of Kia Joorabchian as Lord Overseer -Director-in-chief-executive-emperor-agent-in-charge of counting the cash. You'll need it. Oh, and I understand you appointed Hughes too.

It will be interesting to see how this one pans out, Sparky is not new to the game and he has a couple of tricks up his sleeve, thats for sure.

Be careful what you wish for.You have just took on the slimy serpent together with one of his offspring.Soon you will have a group of overpaid and overaged players who are loyal only to their agent(sorry,advisor).When Joorabchian and Hughes have bled you dry,they will then move onto the next bunch of suckers.
