DJ Campbell told Soccer AM that he expects QPR to bounce straight back up to the Premier League.

The 31-year-old Londoner, who has had spells on loan at Championship teams Ipswich and Blackburn this term, is currently on the sidelines after breaking his metatarsal in February.

But he joined Helen and Max to discuss the mood in the QPR camp after they were relegated and his future.

"It is disappointing obviously. Getting relegated is not what we wanted," said Campbell on Soccer AM.

"A lot of money has been spent and it has not worked out. As a fan I know exactly what the fans must be feeling.

"QPR chairman Tony Fernandes is a nice guy, a good guy and it is a shame that things have not worked out for him. I genuinely believe that he wants the best for the fans and he has spent a lot of money. But as I said, football is football - sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't."

The good news for QPR is that manager Harry Redknapp has said that he has no intentions of leaving and is focussed on building a squad capable of winning promotion back to the Premier League.

"Harry is a great manger and he has done some great things. Hopefully he can get us straight back up in the Premiership.

"I am not sure what is happening to me, I am just focussing on getting fit and leave it up to my representatives to sort it out. I am a fan of QPR - born and bred in Shepherds Bush - but the club is more important than me."
