Harry Redknapp will remain as manager of Queens Park Rangers despite the club's relegation from the Premier League.
QPR owner Tony Fernandes held talks with Redknapp on Monday and says ''I don't think there was any point where he was thinking of not being with us and continuing this project he has embarked upon.''
Redknapp took over as QPR manager in November on a 2 1/2-year deal with the team bottom of the table, but couldn't engineer an escape from the relegation zone in the second half of the season despite heavy spending in January on Loic Remy and Christopher Samba.
QPR's relegation was confirmed Sunday with a 0-0 draw at Reading.
Fernandes says ''Harry will not be forced to sell any players he wants to keep.''

Reading and Queens Park Rangers became the first teams to be relegated from the English Premier League this season after they drew 0-0 on Sunday.
Both teams needed a win to keep a slim hope alive of overtaking 17th-place Aston Villa, but neither side managed to create many clear-cut chances in a game that featured little creativity or entertainment value.
