Mark Warburton has revealed he does not expect to be staying on as QPR manager beyond the end of this season.
There had been speculation in recent weeks that the west London club were going to part company with the 59-year-old.
Rangers had been in the promotion picture until a run of poor form has left them looking set for yet another campaign in the Championship.
They play their final home match of the season against Sheffield United tomorrow night – with Millwall supporters hoping that QPR inflict a defeat on the Blades to boost the Lions’ prospects of snatching sixth spot.
Warburton is out of contract this summer.
“I think if that was the case [of me staying], communication about contract talks would already have been held,” said Warburton, when asked if he would be staying in his post. “But my job, rest assured, is that while you are in post you do the job to the best of your ability and that will always be the case.
“We’ve all got flaws and faults, but I can honestly say that will never change and whatever job I am in I will be very fastidious and you do the job to the best of your ability.
“You never talk ill of the club, individuals at the club and put your head down with your staff and get the job done.
“But the owners write the cheques, it’s their money that goes into a football club and whether you agree or disagree, it doesn’t matter, it’s their choice, and it’s their prerogative.
“They live and die by decisions and when you are fortunate enough to be in situ you just try and do the best you can. I don’t expect to be here [next season] but I will do the job to the best I can from here and see what happens after that.”
