Rob Steiner has been forced to quit due to injury
Queens Park Rangers striker Rob Steiner admits he is facing an uncertain future after being forced to retire from the game.

The 27-year-old Swede has conceded defeat following a long battle with a knee injury and decided to quit the game after being told he risked shattering the knee completely should he to try and battle on.

"My knee is in a very bad state," Steiner said.

"I want to get out with at least a half decent knee. There have already been changes in the bone structure.


"It is so disappointing. Gerry Francis and the management at QPR believed in me and I feel like I am letting everybody down.

"I have no education - nothing - and now have a whole new life in front of me. I do hope to stay in football."

Steiner cost Rangers 215,000 when he was signed from in July 1999, following two successful loan spells at Loftus Road.

The striker made a total of 33 appearances for Rangers, scoring nine goals in spell at the First Division club.
