Queens Park Rangers boss Paul Hart has left the club after just five games in charge. Hart, who was sacked by Portsmouth earlier this season, was the ninth boss in the last 26-months.

Some reports suggest the decision came after Hart fell out with the Rangers board over transfers, while an argument with on-loan midfielder Adel Taarabt has also been reported.

Assistant manager Mick Harford will take charge until the end of the campaign, starting with Saturday's trip to Blackpool.

A Rangers statement read: "The club can confirm that manager Paul Hart has decided to leave Queens Park Rangers Football Club with immediate effect."
