“This is a new start for us and one I am confident Chris will relish playing a major part in.”

QPR manager Chris Ramsey in the dark over future at Loftus Road

Chris Ramsey has admitted he is still waiting for QPR to tell him whether he will lead the club's fight for another quick-fire Premier League return.

Ramsey believes he has "a good chance" of securing the long-term job at QPR, but conceded "I'm still looking for that postman every morning."

Ramsey's short-term contract will expire at the end of the season, with the 53-year-old urging QPR to move quickly on plans for next year's Championship campaign.

"I think I've got a good chance of getting the job, but things change," said Ramsey.

"I can't be sure of course until the contract's signed, until everything's finalised."

QPR were relegated to the Championship following their 6-0 rout at Manchester City on Sunday and the club must now decide whether to appoint Ramsey as their permanent manager.

The 53-year-old has presided over just two wins in 13 games since replacing Harry Redknapp in February, but the team he inherited was troubled by dressing-room issues and was already marooned in the bottom three.

Ramsey believes he should remain at the helm and expects to discover his fate within the next seven days, explaining:

We're still talking. Nothing is 100 per cent yet but I'm hoping I'll be in charge next season. I've brushed on it with the club. They've told me we will make an announcement within the next week. I'm hoping it's going to be me.

I believe it will be me, as much as football will allow me to believe that! I do have that belief but I can't confirm it because there's been no pen put to paper regarding the situation.

I think the players have shown a great response to me being here. The fact we've competed quite admirably in most of the games shows I do have the ability to take the club forward.

QPR have banned Mauro Zarate and fined the West Ham loanee two weeks wages for storming out of the camp after being left out against Liverpool this month.

Zarate travelled back to London on his own after Chris Ramsey omitted him from the squad at Anfield on May 2nd, the Mirror reports.

The Argentine joined QPR on loan in January but in truly comical fashion, manager at the time, Harry Redknapp, tried to swap him for West Ham's Matt Jarvis during the same window, only to discover this was against Premier League rules.

He has not started a single match for QPR.
