Blackburn manager Tony Mowbray and QPR's Mark Warburton expecting to leave clubs at end of season

Blackburn manager Tony Mowbray and QPR's Mark Warburton believe their time is up at their respective Championship clubs.

QPR boss Mark Warburton has admitted he is yet to have talks with owners about a new deal and time is running out, while Tony Mowbray also looks set to leave Ewood Park after five years in charge.

The former Rangers, Nottingham Forest and Brentford manager believes the lack of an approach from the club is indicative that they will not be renewing his services.

Warburton said: "I think if that (staying) was the case, communication about contract talks would already have been held.

"I don't expect to be here (next season) but I will do the job to the best I can from here and see what happens after that."

Warburton, who took over at Loftus Road in 2019, says it is the owners' prerogative to change manager and will remain respectful of his position between now and the end of his contract.

Queens Park Rangers Manager Mark Warburton claps the fans prior to kick off.

"My job, rest assured, is that while you are in post you do the job to the best of your ability and that will always be the case," he added.

"We've all got flaws and faults, but I can honestly say that will never change and whatever job I am in I will be very fastidious and you do the job to the best of your ability.

"But the owners write the cheques, it's their money that goes into a football club and whether you agree or disagree, it doesn't matter, it's their choice, and it's their prerogative.

"They live and die by decisions and when you are fortunate enough to be in situ you just try and do your best you can."

Blackburn Rovers manager Tony Mowbray speaks with John Buckley

Blackburn manager Tony Mowbray has made a decision over his future at the club and looks set to leave Ewood Park after five years in charge.

Mowbray says he has not heard anything from the club's hierarchy about his future, despite the club chasing a play-off place with two games of the Sky Bet Championship season remaining.

Mowbray told the Lancashire Telegraph: "All I can do is say that there's been no conversation, no approach, no discussions and we're a week away from the end of the season, so what do you want me to think?

"I don't feel like I'm being disloyal saying anything other than it looks like I'm leaving because there's no contract discussions and I'm out of contract at the end of the season.

"At this moment I don't need to instigate anything, I'm clear in my own mind. I'm pretty relaxed. Why? Because I've got a life balance to get on with."

Mowbray hinted after Monday's win over Preston that he would address his work-life balance in the summer and when asked about those comments, added: "I do that every day, I'm not sure I've had my work-life balance right.

"I commit a lot of time to this football club, away from my family and my kids, but I need to address that pretty soon."

Asked if that was to do with his future, the 58-year-old said: "I've decided."
