We killed each other off - Redknapp

Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp says his players must stay and help the club win their Premier League place back following relegation.

Sunday's goalless draw at Reading, who were also relegated, ended QPR's two-season stay in the top flight.

There are reports that some players have clauses in their contracts allowing them to leave in the event of QPR going down.

"Who should be escaping? Sorry, I don't buy into that," Redknapp said.

The former Tottenham boss indicated that he had been planning for life in the Championship with QPR before the Reading result confirmed their demise.

He will meet with club owner Tony Fernandes, who was at the Madejski Stadium, on Monday to discuss next season.

"Planning starts tomorrow," Fernandes tweeted on Sunday.

"Meeting [manager] Harry Redknapp at 11 to discuss squad. Going to be tough but we will come back stronger."

Redknapp made it clear after the match at the Madejski Stadium that he feels it is the responsibility of the players to stay and help the club win promotion back to the Premier League.

"If the players were that good then we wouldn't be sitting bottom of the league," he added.

"If some players suddenly think they're too good for the Championship... I'm not having that."

Redknapp, 66, admits it will be a tough challenge to get QPR back in the Premier League after their relegation with three games of the season remaining.

"Next year it will be very difficult to get promoted, there are some good teams," he added.

"For us to get promoted we have to come back in pre-season and get super fit. The Championship is Saturday, midweek.

"If you are not fit enough you won't survive, you won't get out of that league. The players that are here have to work so hard and want to get super fit to compete next year."

QPR have spent big over the past two seasons since Fernandes became owner.

Defender Christopher Samba cost £12.5m from Anzhi Makhachkala while Loic Remy (£8m), Bobby Zamora (£6m) and Djibril Cisse (£4m) have also proved expensive purchases.

Fernandes was at the Madejski Stadium to see confirmation of QPR's relegation.

"I will get to see him this week and we will have some meetings and talk about things going forward, with the team, with the players," Redknapp said.

"I have said many times they [the owners] are good people, so I would love to see them get back in the Premier League and build a team that will stay there next time."
