QPR Manager Suspended Over Alleged Headbutt

0912_qpr.jpg The manager of Queen's Park Rangers, Jim Magilton, has been suspended by the club after a bust-up with one of his players. In the wake of Monday night's defeat at Watford — following a 5-1 reversal at home to Middlesboro on Saturday — Magilton is alleged to have headbutted midfielder Akos Buzsaky after the Hungarian player reacted indifferently to a post-match dressing down. Buzsaky is understood to be seeking legal advice, and QPR may have no choice but to dispense with yet another gaffer. The club currently lie 12th in the Championship, but given the immense riches that financial backers Flavio Briatore, Lakshmi Mittal and Bernie Ecclestone command, the lack of a credible promotion challenge has cranked up the pressure on Magilton.
