Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink hopes he will be given time to guide a QPR side that is in transition and compared the Hoops to Manchester United.
Ahead of the 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest, the Dutchman was reportedly a defeat away from the sack.
With Rangers trailing to Britt Assombalonga's strike, QPR looked to be destined for defeat with Karl Henry sent off.
However, Hildeberto Pereira also saw red for Forest with Idrissa Sylla heading home a fine equaliser.
When asked by GetWestLondon whether he felt under pressure, Hasselbaink responded by saying: “Should I feel under pressure? It is what it is. That's football. You've been around QPR for a long time and know what is happening.
“That's the case. I'm trying to do a good job and I think we're going in a good direction. Hopefully I'll be given time – it's not my decision.
“We have a much bigger club than QPR – Man United – they're in transition. It's sometimes not that easy.
“It's about time and taking time and being calm and being in control and make the players feel you're in control and calm. There's no time for panic. I don't know (if I am under pressure).”
Tim Sherwood was rumoured to take over and Hasselbaink showed signs of a man under pressure by slumping onto the bench when things were going badly before wildly celebrating Sylla's equaliser.
He added: “If they're going to do something, they're going to do it. It doesn't matter if you celebrate or not.
“I was just happy because we're with 10 men and to play in that manner, they deserved a goal. The rest is what it is – that's football.”
Hasselbaink also feels he has the full backing of the QPR board and admitted he had been just as unhappy with some performances just like the supporters.
He explained: “I feel I've got the backing of the board until they say something differently. Of course fans aren't happy with certain performances.
“I'm not happy either. The league is inconsistent and we are inconsistent. We are six points from the play-offs. We could have three, four or five points more.”
