Pompey, QPR... now Palace for Paul Hart

Former Portsmouth manager Paul Hart took charge of Championship side Crystal Palace on Tuesday.

Hart, who was sacked as Premier League Portsmouth's manager in November, replaces Neil Warnock at cash-strapped Palace who were deducted 10 points earlier this season after going into administration.

"I think it's quite obvious I like a challenge, and this is a big one, but I felt that the support would be there," Hart told reporters at a news conference. "There's only one objective and that is to stay in this division."
