The QPR manager Harry Redknapp launched an extraordinary rant about his attacking midfielder Adel Taarabt saying the Moroccan was "about three stone overweight". Taarabt is one of the most talented players in the QPR squad but was left out of the team to play Liverpool yesterday. At the post-match press conference, Redknapp went public about his problems with the player:

He played in a reserve team game the other day, and I could have run about more than he did. So no, I can't pick him. I can't keep protecting people who don't want to run about and train, who are about three stone overweight. What am I supposed to keep saying, keep getting your 60, 70 grand a week but don't train?

– Harry Redknapp, QPR Manager

QPR lost yesterday's match 3-2 after conceding two own goals. The result means they have taken just four points from their first eight Premier League games.
