QPR manager pleads with players to stay

6:52 am on 29 April 2013

Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp says his players must stay and help the club regain their place in the English Premier League after being relegated on Monday morning.

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

There are suggestions that some players have clauses in their contracts allowing them to leave the team in the event of relegation.

The club's owner Tony Fernandes has said it's going to be tough but they'll come back stronger.
