QPR assistant manager Richard Hill has been suspended by the club.
Queens Park Rangers assistant manager Richard Hill has been suspended by the club following last week's fight with the China Under 23 team.
During a friendly match at the club's training ground last Wednesday, China's Zheng Tao suffered a broken jaw as a mass brawl broke out.
An internal investigation was promised by QPR chairman Gianni Paladini and the club have now confirmed Hill has been suspended.
"Following the incident at the training ground on February 7, and the subsequent police investigation of the matter, Queens Park Rangers Football Club have suspended assistant manager Richard Hill from his duties until further notice," read a statement on the club's official website.
The Football Association has confirmed it is also investigating the brawl and is in 'ongoing communication with the police'.
Meanwhile, R's boss John Gregory (pictured) has challenged on-loan goalkeeper Lee Camp to earn a permanent contract at Loftus Road.
Camp has joined the club on loan for the rest of the season from Derby County and Gregory has thrown down the gauntlet.
Gregory said: "Although Lee is here only until the end of the season, I am looking beyond the next three months.
"I have a few decisions to make in the goalkeeping department at the end of the season, so it is a fantastic opportunity for Lee to stake a claim."
