QPR appoint Jim Magilton
QPR have named former Ipswich boss Jim Magilton as their new manager.
The 40-year-old, who was sacked by the Tractor Boys in April after failing to guide them into the Coca-Cola Championship play-offs, has signed a two-year deal at Loftus Road.
Magilton will now be expected to ensure Rangers are challenging for promotion back to the Barclays Premier League after a disappointing 11th-placed finish last term.
"There is a very strong group here and with one or two additions we can expect to be in a position to drastically improve upon last season," he said.
