QPR's statement on Mark Hughes

Queens Park Rangers Football Club has today (Friday) terminated the contract of manager Mark Hughes with immediate effect.

This decision has been taken after careful consideration by the Board of Directors, following numerous meetings over the last few days.

The Board of Directors wish to thank Mark for his commitment, hard work and dedication in his 10 months in charge.

Mark has shown integrity and professionalism throughout his time here, but ultimately the circumstances we find ourselves in have left the Board of Directors with very little choice but to make a change.

The Board will now be working actively to put a new managerial structure in place as soon as possible.

Mark Bowen and Eddie Niedzwiecki will take charge of the R's trip to Manchester United in the Barclays Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

The club will be making a further announcement in due course.

6-1 victory for Chelsea

Chelsea have demolished Queen's Park Rangers, winning 6-1 at Stamford Bridge. The result is a boost to their chances of finishing in the top four of the Premier League and thus qualifying for next season's Champions League.

It couldn't have been worse for QPR who are desperately trying to avoid relegation to the Championship.

The first goal came from Daniel Sturridge just 46 seconds in. John Terry also scored while Fernando Torres got a hat-trick. Malouda netted goal six.

QPR pulled one back through Djibril Cissé in the 84th minute.

There was no handshake between the two sides to avoid any chance of it affecting Chelsea captain John Terry's upcoming trial. The defender denies a charge of racially abusing QPR defender Anton Ferdinand in October.
