Chris Ramsey admits he would love to secure a permanent role as QPR boss but says his only priority right now is keeping the Loftus Road club in the Premier League.

Ramsey was given the QPR hotseat until the end of the season and chairman Tony Fernandes this week claimed he would be “nuts” not to give him the job permanently should he steer the club away from relegation.

Ramsey takes QPR to fellow strugglers Hull City on Saturday seeking to make it back-to-back wins on the road in the league after gaining their first away points of the season at Sunderland last time out.

Survival is the main aim for Ramsey in the short-term.

“I do have a long way to go to be the dream manager. I’m really just focusing on the next few games, trying to get those wins to keep us up,” he said.

QPR are on offer at 3.78 to win at Hull with Steve Bruce’s side the 2.10 favourites and the draw at 3.23.

Ramsey says the Hoops must find the right man for the manager’s job and he would be “very pleased” should they elect to make him that man.

The best way to ensure his name is in the running is by helping the club maintain their top-flight status, according to the man himself.

“We would all like us to stay up and have that decision then to bring someone else in or to keep me here. I want to try and give him
(Fernandes) that difficult decision,” Ramsey added.

Victory at Hull would see QPR leapfrog their hosts in the table.
