QPR goalkeeper Rob Green fears that the club could go into freefall in the next few seasons.
Rangers, who have been relegated to the Championship for the second time in three years, handed caretaker boss Chris Ramsey the manager's job on a permanent basis on Tuesday.
Ramsey has been handed a three-year deal at Loftus Road, while former West Ham United and Norwich City shot-stopper has been linked with a summer transfer to Chelsea.

QPR finish a dispiriting campaign with a visit to Leicester City on Sunday and can be backed at 1/1 to keep a clean sheet against the Foxes and at 1/1 to edge the encounter 1-0.
QPR at least showed some character to come from behind to beat Newcastle United 2-1 on Saturday, but Green remains pessimistic about the club's future.
He said: "The repercussions of the 2012-13 season are still being felt. They were felt last season, even though we scraped up via the play-offs. The ramifications have been felt this season and will be felt in coming seasons.
"The club are still paying a price for it - literally. They're still paying for players that didn't want to be part of something here. To bring that on the players that are still here is unfair.
"This season ended with disappointment and it's easy to tarnish us all with the same brush but it's been a very different side."
There is set to be a mass exodus at the end of the season as QPR will have 13 players out of contract in the summer.
