Queens Park Rangers boss Mark Hughes remains in charge of the Premier League strugglers following a meeting with chief executive Philip Beard.
Reports claimed the ex-Wales boss had been sacked after the pair met at the Hoops' training ground on Monday.

Hughes is under pressure with winless QPR sitting bottom having taken four points from their opening 12 games.
But his representative
Kia Joorabchian told BBC Sport: "These rumours are not true at all."
And Ian Taylor, the club's head of media and communications, tweeted: "Rumours suggesting Mark Hughes has been sacked as QPR manager tonight [Monday] are not true."
Hughes, 49, did not take training on Monday as he was studying the post-match analysis of the loss to Southampton, but did work with his players on Tuesday as normal.
The Welshman, who has also managed Blackburn, Manchester City and Fulham,
insisted he would not resign from his job
following Saturday's 3-1 home defeat by the Saints.
Some fans demanded his sacking
during and after the match,
which leaves QPR five points adrift of safety.
Chairman Tony Fernandes has continued to publicly back Hughes, who he
appointed in January
sacked predecessor Neil Warnock.
After the Southampton game, the Malaysian
said he was "gutted" by the result.
Winger Junior Hoilett, who was signed by Hughes from former side Blackburn in the summer, insists everyone at the west London club must stick together.
"Everybody in the dressing room was hugely disappointed with the result," he said.
"We're all really disappointed and frustrated with how things are going at the moment, but we will work hard to put it right.
"I can understand the fans' frustrations. We're as frustrated as they are because we want to change this around and climb the table. We've got to stick together as a team."
