Rob Green says he is happy to stay at Queens Park Rangers beyond the summer despite the club’s relegation to the Championship.

The goalkeeper spent most of the season as second choice at Loftus Road, with Júlio Cesar preferred by QPR boss Harry Redknapp and his predecessor Mark Hughes.

However, the Brazil international is expected to leave at the end of the season, opening up the number one spot for Green at the west London side.

“I see my future wherever I am told it is really,” Green told QPR’s website.

“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 upmost 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.”
