QPR chief executive confident of hanging onto players

QPR chief executive Philip Beard claims relegation from the top flight won't see an exodus of their top players. The club are third from bottom but have invested heavily in players over the last year, and appointed Mark Hughes as manager in January after sacking Neil Warnock.

Club chief executive Beard said at the Soccerex conference in Manchester: "We were very active in the 10 days after the takeover in August and fairly active in January and I'll stand behind every single one of those contracts irrespective of what happens.

"If we do not stay up I anticipate the vast majority will stay at QPR to try and help us get back. We've gone into this with our eyes wide open.

"Our aim is to find a stabilised position in the Premier League over next few years."
