Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp hints that Moroccan midfielder Adel Taarabt is "three stone overweight".

Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp has criticised Adel Taarabt's fitness, hinting that the Moroccan midfielder is "three stone overweight".

The 25-year-old was left out of the R's squad to face Liverpool this afternoon at Loftus Road, in a game that finished 3-2 to the Reds.

When asked about Taarabt's omission at a post-match press conference, Redknapp said: "He isn't fit. He played in a reserve game the other day and I could run more than he did.

"I can't protect players who don't want to run about, who can't train or are three stone overweight, getting 70 or 80 thousand pounds a week."

Taarabt spent the second half of last season on loan with AC Milan, but a permanent move fell through.
