Harry Redknapp odds on to replace Mark Hughes as QPR manager

The managerial merry-go-round is in full swing now following the news that Mark Hughes has been sacked by QPR. The Welshman had been treading a fine line at Loftus Road and he was finally shown the door on Friday as he became the second Premier League manager to be given his P45 in the space of a few days after Roberto Di Matteo lost his job at Chelsea.

Di Matteo is actually in the mix with some bookies in the next QPR manager betting but it is Harry Redknapp who is odds on favourite to take over. Redknapp has been out of work since he was sacked by Tottenham at the end of last season and he appears to be QPR chairman Tony Fernandes's preferred choice. Redknapp had been linked with the Ukraine national team job during the past few days but developments at QPR have shifted the landscape significantly.

Redknapp is 1/33 odds on favourite for the job at Loftus Road with Ladbrokes and he would appear to be the perfect fit for a club that is winless in the Premier League so far. They have taken just four points from 12 league games and they sit bottom of the league after losing 3-1 to Southampton last weekend.

Redknapp's powers of motivation would be much needed at a club that is low on confidence but the timing of Hughes' sacking is curious as it came barely 24 hours before their trip to Old Trafford for their league match with Manchester United. Mark Bowen will be in temporary charge for that game but the next permanent manager has an easier run of fixtures as QPR take on Sunderland, Aston Villa, Wigan, Fulham and Newcastle in their next five after Saturday.

Away from Redknapp, Sven Goran Eriksson is second favourite to take over at Loftus Road and the former England boss can be backed at 10/1 in the latest betting with Ladbrokes. The Swede is currently working in the Thai Premier League but he has been linked with a move to Valerenga in Norway during the past few days, although a move back to the Premier League would be too good to turn down.

Roberto Di Matteo is a 20/1 chance to make a swift return to management after his harsh treatment at Chelsea. He is already based in London and could be a suitable alternative after winning the Champions League and FA Cup with Chelsea last term.

Meanwhile, Glenn Hoddle is 33/1 to make a shock return to management, while Molde boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is also 33/1 to make his much-anticipated bow in Premier League management. Tottenham coach Tim Sherwood is available at 40/1, along with the likes of Alex McLeish, Ian Holloway and Paolo Di Canio but for now it is Redknapp who remains the bookies' favourite.
