Magilton's QPR Exit confirmed

Paul Smith by Paul Smith / 17 December 2009, 09:49

QPR Manager Jim Magilton's exit from Loftus Road has been confirmed after the club announced that the two had parted company by mutual consent. It follows the news that Magilton had been suspended from his duties following an incident with player, Akos Buzsaky, following the team's recent defeat at Watford.

John Gorman, Magilton's assistant, also leaves the club, leaving former Rangers players, Steve Gallen and Marc Bircham, now youth team coaches, in charge of the Hoops game at home to Sheffield United on Saturday and will possibly continue at the helm over the crucial Christmas period.

Magilton leaves Rangers sitting 12th in The Championship and whilst it wasn't directly down to results that the former Northern Ireland international was shown the exit door, the Rs had only won one of the last seven games that he was in charge for. Now Chairman, Flavio Briatore, must seek to find a replacement that will guide the club back towards the promotion race and deliver the kind of results that are aligned with the investment and expectations that Briatore and Bernie Ecclestone's millions merit. However, the Loftus Road faithful will be hoping that the next appointment will bring consistency after Magilton was the sixth manager under Briatore's reign at the club.

The early rumours emerging are suggesting that the recently sacked Portsmouth manager, Paul Hart, may be set to make a quick return to football by taking over at Rangers.
