Redknapp clears up midfielder’s absence
Manager Harry Redknapp has now explained the reasons behind the midfielder’s absence.
Rangers managed to win these games via the use of their new tactic of using out-and-out strikers in Bobby Zamora and January signing Loic Remy, without having a playmaker, in the form of Taarabt, in between the midfield and the attack.
Former Engalnd striker and now television highlight show pundit Alan Shearer criticised the Moroccan’s effectiveness in front of goal and despite Redknapp denying watching the show he used to be on, the former Spurs boss tended to agree with what was said in his explanation to the press.
“Adel did well when he played there but he’s not an out-and-out striker, but now we have two front men in Bobby and Remy,” Redknapp said about Taarabt’s playmaking role, as reported by The Ealing Gazette.
“Adel likes to cut in from the left, or midfield, but his goals are going to come from dribbles or spectacular shots.
“He’s not going to get in the box and get tap-ins, and that’s where Remy and Bob just might nick a goal for you.”
So Redknapp has explained to the rest of the football world why Taarabt isn’t being selected, but could recent success for QPR spell the end of Taarabt’s stay as Loftus Road?
