Iain Dowie wants to stay on as Hull manager after seeing their relegation from the Premier League confirmed, but stressed the club's financial problems mean his future remains a secondary concern.

FOOTBALL Premier League Hull City manager Iain Dowie - 0

The Tigers, who were already as good as down due to their vastly inferior goal difference, had their fate sealed at Wigan when Steven Gohouri fired home an acrobatic effort in stoppage time to level the match at 2-2.

Hull are also saddled with debts of around 35 million and face a summer of upheaval as they attempt to keep the club solvent.

Dowie, who replaced Phil Brown at the helm in March on a short-term deal, is yet to discuss his future with club chairman Adam Pearson, but insists he is happy to wait.

Asked if he would be with Hull in the Championship, Dowie said: "That's for people much more erudite than me to talk about. I don't know. It doesn't need to be discussed (yet). Adam knows how to run a football club.

"He has been involved for a long time and he is dealing with what are the pressing (issues), which are the financial difficulties. It's important for going forward that the club's solvency is dealt with first. Mine or any player's future will become secondary to that."
