Harry Redknapp has launched an astonishing attack on Adel Taarabt.
The QPR manager has publicly criticised Taarabt on a number of occasions and gave his most damning assessment of him yet after the 3-2 defeat against Liverpool.
Taarabt was left out of the matchday squad for the game, with Redknapp once again indicating that the Moroccan is unfit and refusing to train properly.
Redknapp said: “He’s not fit to play football. He’s about three stone overweight. He played in a reserve game and I could have run about more than he did.
“I pick people who want to train and want to come in every day and work and play for a good club like QPR. When he starts doing that – whether he can do it – he’ll get a game.
“I can’t keep protecting people. What am I supposed to say, ‘keep getting your £60,000 or £70,000 a week and don’t train’?”
