There has been speculation about Redknapp's future at Loftus Road with talk of retirement or a move to another club, but the 67-year-old told Sky Sports News: "I have still got a contract here and I am looking forward to next year, looking forward to next season."

Redknapp was speaking at Loftus Road as QPR celebrated their return to the Premier League following their dramatic 1-0 play-off win against Derby at Wembley.

The game was heading for extra-time before Bobby Zamora scored a 90th-minute winner to fire Rangers back to the Premier League.

He said: "It's great that the people have turned up and that's what it's all about, they love their club and have got their colours on - that's what you do it for. We made their year and we are looking forward to the Premier League.

"Being back in the Premier League is fantastic, playing all those teams and bringing them down here to Loftus Road. We will have a go and try and stay in the division."

Redknapp claims he was waiting for the result of the play-off final before speaking to QPR owner Tony Fernandes about possible transfer targets for next season.

He said: "I haven't even thought about a player for next year - honestly, everything depended on yesterday, the result was key to the whole football club. We got that result and are in the Premier League so now we can start looking forward to next year.

"It's going to be a busy time, we haven't started to organise anything. We need to organise a pre-season, where we are going for a training camp, pre-season games, players out of contract, players you are looking to bring in. It's going to be a busy month or so.

"We got rid of 18 players in the summer and a lot of them were very good players. The squad got decimated because we had to cut the wage bill so I never felt that it was a team certain to go up. At the start of the year I would have took the play-offs."

wo things. First, I can't stop reading your name as 'Dane Bowers'. Second, you used the words 'philosophy' and 'Redknapp' in the same sentence.
