Queens Park Rangers have appointed Jim Magilton as their new manager.

Magilton has signed a two-year deal to succeed Paolo Sousa at Loftus Road.

The former Northern Ireland international has been out of work since April after being sacked by Ipswich.

Magilton is excited at the prospect of taking over at ambitious Rangers and he is confident they can improve on last season's 11th place finish in the Championship.

"I'm really looking forward to the challenge of managing this great football club," Magilton told the club's official website.

"The board are highly ambitious, but they are very realistic at the same time. I have huge ambitions to achieve as a Manager though, and our aim is to keep progressing, year after year.

"There is a very strong group of players at the club and with one or two additions over the summer, we can expect to be in a position to drastically improve upon the eleventh place finish secured last season.

Not the big name manager I expected them to go for, did a decent enough job at Ipswich and will now have the cash to play with. I doubt Forest will get Blackstock and Camp now.
