QPR fans react on Twitter to Harry Redknapp's Taarabt rant

There were plenty of views on show on social media as Queens Park Rangers supporters reacted to Harry Redknapp's fascinating rant about Adel Taarabt.

Harry Redknapp's revealing comments about Adel Taarabt were quite something on Sunday afternoon.

Frustration following QPR's last-gasp 3-2 defeat to Liverpool had obviously got to the Rs boss. Who wouldn't be frustrated if your side had defended 'worse than an under-11 team' (as someone in the dressing room apparently put it) and scored two own goals?

After the game, then, when Redknapp was asked about Taarabt, he didn't have the patience to be anything other than blunt. He claimed that he can no longer defend a player who is 'three stone overweight' and refuses to train.

This is nothing new, though, of course. Those that follow QPR closely know that Redknapp has been disappointed with the Moroccan all season. Recently, he claimed that he would sell the forward to anyone willing to buy him - except that no one is.

His latest comments, meanwhile, have split opinion. Many back Harry and say the club should sack 25-year-old Taarabt if he is indeed behaving this way. Others, however, believe the QPR boss is simply looking for excuses.

And, as always, there is a middle way: to simply laugh at the situation. The above picture, a mock-up of Taarabt at an eating contest, does just that. Here are the best fan reactions to the rant on Twitter!
