Hoddle, Jordan leave QPR

The veteran boss announced on Tuesday that he had decided to stand down because he needs to have knee replacement surgery.

Head of football operations Les Ferdinand has therefore taken charge on a temporary basis, to be supported by Chris Ramsey.

And former England boss Hoddle, plus Jordan, who has coached regularly under Redknapp, have now departed Loftus Road as well.

Hoddle joined QPR as a first-team coach in January and is quoted in the betting market as a candidate to become their next permanent boss but he told Zapsportz.com that he had left the club.

Hoddle said: ???I am a bit shocked and surprised, to tell you the truth.

???We all know football is a results-orientated business but I always felt that, given a few more games, Harry could have turned it around down there at the bottom.

???It would have only taken a couple of good results to have achieved that, as it is very tight down there.

???But that???s football for you. I have enjoyed coming back into coaching and I thanked Harry for giving me that opportunity to tip my toe back into the coaching arena.

???I have enjoyed every minute. I wished him all the best and I do sincerely hope QPR can stay up.

???I would love the players to turn it around as I have enjoyed working with them, and hope I have improved them.???
