Queens Park Rangers were relegated to the Championship last weekend after their dismal 0-0 draw away to fellow relegated Reading. 

Redknapp expressed how fed-up and disappointed he was after the full time whistle, which sealed their fate being relegated back to the Championship.

“It’s going to be very hard to get out of it, make no mistake about that,” the Rangers boss told www.qpr.co.uk.

“You need people who are going to be up for playing three times a week next year. We’ve got to get on with it, get the players fit over pre-season and try to get out of a very tough league. 

“QPR are not a superpower going into the Championship, it’s full of quality teams. We’ve got no divine right to come straight back up.”

Harry Redknapp, who took charge of Queens Park Rangers in late November 2012, had a hard task of getting the Rangers stars to perform like a team and get the points they needed to climb out of the bottom three, but that was never going to be the case.

“The club unfortunately had gone 13 games without winning. That’s a bad start by anybody’s standards," he said.

"We've been in near enough every game this year. I just felt we lacked up front a little bit, we’ve been short of a bit of quality to win games.

“The balance of the team has never been quite right in all honesty and we just came up short.”

However, Harry Redknapp has a job to do regardless of how hard it'll be next season.

He added: "I’ve got to sit down with the owners this week to see what the plans are.

“They’re great people and I’ll help them do whatever they want to do.”

QPR will now look to offload members of the squad who will be too expensive to keep in the Championship. However, they may struggle to sell a number of those players given their high wages.
