QPR boss Magilton accused of head butting player

Queens Park Rangers have suspended boss Jim Magilton after he was accused of head butting one of his players. Reports of a bust-up between Magilton and midfielder Akos Buzsaky emerged following QPR's 3-1 defeat at Watford on Monday night.

Hungarian midfielder Buzsaky has threatened to press charges if action is not taken against the Ulsterman, and the player's representatives met with QPR chairman Gianni Paladini on Tuesday to discuss the situation.

A club statement read: "The club can confirm that manager Jim Magilton has been suspended with immediate effect, pending an internal investigation.

"The suspension relates to an incident which occurred at Monday's Championship fixture against Watford at Vicarage Road.

"The club will be making no further comment at this stage."

When questioned about reports of a row following the match on Monday, Magilton said: "Difference of opinion. Anything that was said will be kept in-house."
