Cape Town - Queens Park Rangers boss Harry Redknapp admits he could quit the club if their current slump continues and his side get relegated at the end of the season.

The former Tottenham boss has been widely expected to extend his contract with Rangers beyond the end of next season when his current deal expires.

However, after a poor start to the season which sees them rooted to the foot of the Premier League standings with just one win from seven, Redknapp's future is shrouded in uncertainty.

And the 67-year-old admits there are no talks over a new deal at present and says he would walk if they get relegated back to the Championship.

"The truth is I told (owner) Tony Fernandes three or four weeks ago that I do not want a contract," he was quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

"We'll see where QPR finish the season and take it from there. If we get relegated I wouldn't expect to stay and I wouldn't want to.

"I told Tony that I get on so well with him and know him so well I don't want a contract. I don't need one. If I'd wanted to sign the contract I could've done a long time ago.

"So we'll see where we are come May, won't we? I may have had enough by then and so might the people that run the club."

Things won't get easier for QPR after the international break, with fixtures against Liverpool, Aston Villa, Chelsea and Manchester City coming thick and fast.
