West London club have just been relegated from the Premier League.
Queens Park Rangers keeper Robert Green says that he is prepared to remain with the west London club next season, even though they will be playing in the Championship, reports the London Evening Standard.
The some-time England international only arrived at Loftus Road last summer on a free transfer from West Ham United, however, the mega-rich Premier League club then also purchased Brazilian shot-stopper Julio Cesar from Inter Milan to act as competition.
As a result, despite staring the previous campaign as QPR’s first-choice goalkeeper under previous head coach Mark Hughes, the 33-year-old then lost his place between the sticks to the experienced Brazil international No 1.
In total, Green made just the 16 Premier League appearances for QPR all season long, and only 19 in all competitions, as the club were relegated to the Championship under new boss Harry Redknapp.
However, the former Norwich City keeper has insisted that he is more than happy to remain in the capital next season to help the club get back to the top flight at the first attempt.
“I see my future wherever I am told it is really,” Green told the club’s official website, www.qpr.co.uk. “Life of a keeper, particularly an English one, is very different to an outfield player where you get 25 squad places with rotation and maybe European games if you are at one of the bigger clubs.
“You get the need for a lot of players whereas with a keeper there are not many teams where you have two first choice keepers – here is one of them.
“You see people saying it is up to us if we stay or go but sometimes it really isn’t.
“If I get told I am here next season then I am here next season and I will do my utmost for the team. If I get told I am here next season and I am on the bench then that is my life and you have got to take it how it is.
“That is something I have learned from this season as much as anything that it is not all laid for you on a red carpet.”
