Mark Hughes has been sacked as manager of QPR - and Harry Redknapp has been appointed as his replacement.
Hughes's assistant manager Mark Bowen will take Rangers, winless and rock-bottom of the Barclays Premier League, to Old Trafford tomorrow with former Tottenham boss Redknapp in the stands.
Redknapp will take formal charge of the team on Sunday.


Hughes's position has been hanging in the balance all week after defeat to Southampton at Loftus Road, a match dubbed 'El Sackico'.
The former Manchester United striker had been preparing his team for the clash at Manchester United with the expectation that he would be on the touchline.
However, owner Tony Fernandes finally snapped this morning, showing Hughes, who had replaced, Neil Warnock the door after 10 months.
Fernandes gave an interview to US TV station Bloomberg yesterday and would not back Hughes.

Hughes has been walking a tightrope since QPR lost at Arsenal on October 27. Fernandes was set to sack him then but had a change of heart and has tried to support him.
They have not won all season but have an easier run of fixtures coming - and a new manager will be licking his lips at that prospect.
