The Rangers boss Chris Ramsey has said he wants Matt Phillips to stay and help the team earn League promotion next season, but, at the same time, he has admitted that QPR is one of those clubs whose financial situation is not good at the moment and thus, in case someone comes with a full wallet and tries to take the player away, he would not be able to do anything.
Phillips was in brilliant form in the latter stages of the 2014-15 League campaign of the Rangers.
The Rangers still couldn’t avoid the relegation though, but, that does not take the credit away from Phillips for the way he played.
The 24-year old was quite consistent and tried his bit to help his team stay in the top tier.
According to Ramsey, there would be enquiries or even bids for Phillips in the transfer window, but, at this point of time, the idea is not to get him sold. However, at times, it gets out of the hands of a club, especially if it is financially weak, to hold onto a certain player.
In an interview, Ramsey said, “As of now, there are no plans to put him on sale, but, in club Football, you have to make the hard calls. Cash is also important at the end of the day. And, as far as we are concerned, it’s one of our priorities to sort the financial issues. So, the board will see what needs to be done if a big offer is on the table. But, he is a valuable player for us and we will love it if he plays in the Rangers’ jersey next season too.”
The Rangers finished 20th in the Premier League table the previous season with only 30 points.
