With just 30 points from 38 games in the Premier League that saw them sit at the bottom of the table for the most part of the season, QPR endured a disastrous campaign in 2014/15 season.

QPR v Charlton Match Highlights

Despite the financial backing and a manager of Harry Redknapp calibre at the help, the Rs failed to get going in the English top flight and are now back in the Championship.

Harry Redknapp is no more and the manager of club at the moment is club’s former head of player development, Chris Ramsey.

He took over the job on a caretaker basis but was later appointed permanently.

Can QPR keep hold of Charlie Austin?

And the gaffer has a massive job at hand following the departure of a number of top class players from the club following the relegation.

The likes of Joey Barton, Rio Ferdinand and Bobby Zamora, all have been released to balance the books and the club now needs to rely on less expensive Championship level players. And the best way to do that is to rely on club’s academy and promote the youngsters to the first team.

However, the good news is that former club hero Jamie Mackie has returned to the club and he will add much needed stability to the side.

Queens Park Rangers are bracing themselves for a bid for highly rated striker Charlie Austin, who was a rare bright spot for the club in the Premier League.

The Englishman scored 18 goals for the club last season and a host of Premier League clubs are interested in signing the player from the Rangers.

The owners and fans will ask for nothing than an immediate return to the Premier League but it would be a tough job to achieve that feat.
