Championship QPR axe boss McClaren

Queens Park Rangers have sacked boss Steve McClaren following a run of one win in 15 Championship games.

McClaren's assistant John Eustace has been placed in interim charge while the West London club search for a new boss.

"Making a decision such as this is never easy, particularly when you are talking about someone as professional and dedicated as Steve," chief executive Lee Hoos said in a statement on the club website.

"It is well documented that we are in a period of transition as we work hard to make the club financially stable.

"As we look to the future, and taking recent results into account, we feel now is the right time to re-evaluate where we are."
