Adel Taarabt release: QPR fans have never been so split on Twitter

Queens Park Rangers have been discussing the Moroccan's release on social media.

Throughout his QPR career, Adel Taarabt has played the role of Marmite.

He's been loved by many, with plenty hating him in equal measure. Rarely has any player ever split opinion as much as the Moroccan, in fact. And that's in a side that contained Joey Barton...

That trend, meanwhile, looks as though it will continue following QPR's release of the 26-year-old, as reported by the Daily Mail. As ever with the skilful forward, R's fans are completely divided on the decision to let Taarabt go.

Plenty still look back fondly on the player who tore the Championship to shreds as QPR got promoted. A lot of them will argue Taarabt wasn't given a fair chance in the Premier League. The opposite side of the argument, however, raises the issue of the Moroccan's attitude and lack of discipline. For the exponents of this one, he won't be missed.

Some are undecided, both praising the ex-QPR man and criticising him at the same time. There will certainly be memories of the 26-year-old's spell with the R's - good and bad. Here's how fans reacted on Twitter to the news he has been released:
