QPR suspend youth-team coach
Queens Park Rangers have suspended highly rated youth-team coach Mark Langton amid allegations of racism.
Langton, who is on a full-time contract at Loftus Road, received an official letter from the club last week formally suspending him. He has been told he is not allowed on site until an internal investigation has concluded.
It is understood that the allegations surfaced when Langton released a number of youth-team players just after Christmas.
QPR then received a complaint from one of the released players and his father alleging racist abuse while he was being coached by Langton.
Rangers on Monday night (21 January) confirmed that a formal investigation has started and Langton has been informed.
Owner Tony Fernandes has told the club’s human resources department to carry out a thorough inquiry into the alleged incident and has pledged his full support.
