West London side confirm appointment of Welshman.
Mark Hughes has been confirmed as the new manager of Queens Park Rangers.
The Welshman was made the favourite to take the job at Loftus Road after the sacking of Neil Warnock on Sunday.
“I’m fully aware of the challenge in the short and long term and I am genuinely excited about the ambition of the owners,” said Hughes.
“The immediate priority is to consolidate our place in the Premier League. The future is very bright.”
QPR lie 17th in the Premier League and have gone eight league games without a win, last picking up three points with a 3-2 win at Stoke on 19 November.
Hughes, left Fulham in June and has previously managed Wales, Blackburn Rovers and Manchester City.

The 48 year old has signed a two and a half year deal and will no doubt be lining up potential January signings as he looks to steer QPR away from the drop zone and put an end to a run of eight games without a win.
Hughes will start his Loftus Road reign with a tricky trip to St James’ Park to face Newcastle United.
