QPR name Mike Rigg as technical director

QPR have appointed Mike Rigg as new technical director.

Rigg joins the Rs from Manchester City.

Rigg worked alongside Mark Hughes when they worked on a number of big deals at The Etihad and they have reunited at Loftus Road where Rigg will have a similar role based in player recruitment.

"I have worked with Mark in a number of different roles so I have a very good understanding of what he wants and what he needs," Rigg said.

"Player acquisition is a big part of football and it is where an enormous amount of investment is made. That's where we must get it right.

"My role involves a mixture of looking at the immediate needs for the football club as well as trying to make sure we have a long-term plan in place for bringing players through into the first team."
