Hughes: Demotion won't be end of QPR

QPR boss Mark Hughes is convinced that there is a bright future ahead for the club, even if they suffer relegation to the Championship this Sunday.

The Rs currently have their heads above water as they are two points clear of 18th-placed Bolton in the Premier League table, but while the Trotters face a Stoke side with nothing to play for on the last day of the season, Hughes' side face the uneviable task of travelling to champions-elect Manchester City.

Hughes could face the ignominy of being relegated by the club that sacked him just two years ago, but the Welshman is preferring to focus on the positives ahead of QPR's date with destiny.

"It is a huge game,'' Hughes said. "In the whole context of QPR, I think if we don't stay in the Premier League what is in place will still continue and still happen.

"What we want to happen is obviously stay in the Premier League so that process is accelerated and we can really go on with building this club to where we want it to be in the future.

"That is the exciting part and that is why I came here. We don't want the setback of relegation In fairness, it will set us back because 12 months or whatever would be hard for us, but it wouldn't stop what is happening here.

"There is a real will to make sure that Queens Park Rangers are a really strong, competitive team in the Premier League for many years to come.''

Hughes has never managed in the second tier before and, given his lofty ambitions, some have suggested he could jump ship if the worst happens. The Welshman, though, was quick to dismiss such talk.

"I didn't sign up with the intention of jumping away from the situation,'' he said. "It is an exciting time for us. We all feel we're on the cusp of a real period of excitement and that is the reason I and many others signed up for it.

"That is what we feel is going to happen and, as I say, if we have take a backwards step then so be it, but it won't stop what is happening here in the future.''

Hughes was also keen to clear up talk that he is in line for a £1 million bonus should he steer the Rs to safety. Several newspapers have reported he will receive a hefty pay day should they retain their top-flight status, although both he and advisor Kia Joorabchian have rejected the claims.

"There is no truth in that,'' Hughes said. "I didn't sign for QPR on the proviso that I had a big bonus if I kept them up. I signed up for what we will do in the future in two or three seasons time.

"It wasn't a period of three or fours months and then I get patted on the back for saving the club from relegation. I don't really think that we should be congratulated for that anyway so I wouldn't expect a bonus for that.''
