Rob Green admits finding his current situation at Queens Park Rangers

Rob Green has been taken out of the first-team at Queens Park Rangers due to financial reasons.

Rob Green has told BBC Sport that he is finding things difficult at Queens Park Rangers currently.

Green has been taken out of the first-team set-up at Loftus Road, due to financial reasons, and he is unlikely to ever play for the club again.

The experienced stopper’s contract expires in the summer, and Green admits that his final few months at QPR will be difficult.

“It’s difficult,” Green said. “It took a while to get my head around it. All I’ve ever wanted to do is play football. It’s a difficult one to deal with, but it’s possibly given me a new lease of life and I can look forward to next season having had this rest.”

According to the Daily Mail, QPR will have to offer Green an extension to his current deal if he plays 30 times this season.

Rangers do not want to keep the 35-year-old on their books and, as a result, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has taken him out of the starting line-up.

Alex Smithies has replaced the former England international and he has impressed with his performances so far.

Smithies has looked reliable when called upon, and the former Huddersfield Town man looks set to play a crucial role as Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink builds a squad at Loftus Road.
