Beard to stand firm over QPR exits

4. QPR’s first home win of the seasonQueens Park Rangers chief executive Philip Beard says no first-team stars will leave on the cheap over summer.

With relegation looming, several R’s players are expected to leave over the close-season but Beard insists they will only move on for the right price and if boss Harry Redknapp agrees to sell them.

“We agreed that if we’re relegated, we have to bounce straight back,” Beard told the Mirror.

“To do this, we need the strongest squad possible and for that reason every player under contract must stay unless we get the right offer and Harry agrees to let them go.”

With Rangers 10 points from safety it appears relegation is now a formality but Beard is looking at the positives and believes the future of the club remains rosy.

He added: “The commitment of the shareholders, including Amit Bhatia, is clear for all to see, and despite what has been a desperately disappointing season, the long-term future is very bright.”
