Five players QPR should try to keep hold of for the Championship, including Robert Green and Clint Hill

Queens Park Rangers' inevitable relegation was confirmed on Sunday and it looks as if the squad is set for a revamp in the summer.

Despite huge spending from owner Tony Fernandes once again, Queens Park Rangers have succumbed to their second relegation from the Premier League in as many years. Chris Ramsey cut a desolate figure in the post match interview after the game. It is unclear whether he will stay in the role for next season.

Whoever does take charge of The Hoops in the Championship is likely to be working with a much different squad to the one that finishes this season. Once again there is talk of a lack of passion, and care for the cause. You have to feel sorry for players like Clint Hill who give their all on the pitch and that is clear to see. However others brought into the club on big wages simply aren't pulling their weight.

The whole structure of the club could do with a change, and it looks as if Les Ferdinand will be at the forefront of that. On BBC's Match of the Day 2 on Sunday night, Jermaine Jenas spoke about the relegation in 2013 which he was part of and the dressing room after the game wasn't one that seemed to be too bothered about the drop from the Premier League.

Obviously many players will have to leave the club due to high wages and the impending case over the Financial Fair Play rules which QPR have failed to adhere to. Others will be leaving to due an impressive campaign in the top flight; step forward Charlie Austin.

There is still a decent enough core to build from for next season though, and here are five players QPR should definitely try to keep for the Championship:

Robert Green

The 'keeper experienced his fourth relegation from the top flight on Sunday (2 x QPR, 1 x West Ham, and 1 x Norwich), and from his post-match interview you can see he was devastated. He's a great goalkeeper in the Premier League, and I would imagine he is committed to the cause for next season. Experience is key in the Championship and he's been there and done it before. Having said that, if Green does depart then QPR have a great deputy in Alex McCarthy ready to step in.

Clint Hill

His contract is due to expire, but Clint Hill is the one to have consistently shown great desire for the club, and there's no doubt he will be putting his body on the line time and time again next season for QPR in the Championship. An important leader at the club, he would be key for any youngsters brought into the team next season as well.

Darnell Furlong

Instead of throwing money at the squad, it is time QPR look to blood a few more youngsters and get the home-grown talent involved in the team. Furlong has featured in the squad regularly this season, and next campaign he should be a starter in the team, to give him the chance to develop his talents further.

Joey Barton

Again, another player who is committed to the club, and has expressed his frustration at some of the players not pulling their weight. There may be interest from other clubs this summer, but someone with his experience and quality would be a fantastic asset in the Championship.

Steven Caulker

It hasn't been the best of seasons for Steven Caulker, following on from an impressive campaign with Cardiff City. He's certainly got a great future ahead of him however and there will be interest in him from Premier League clubs this summer. QPR must try and keep hold of him despite the offers as he will be a rock at the back in the Championship. He is still young and could go on to become a key player at Loftus Road for years to come.
