Nelsen urges QPR teammate Taarabt to ignore Man Utd rumours

Ryan Nelsen has urged QPR pal Adel Taarabt to ignore the interest of Manchester United.

Ryan Nelsen has urged QPR pal Adel Taarabt to ignore the interest of Manchester United.

The mercurial Moroccan has been linked with a shock £12million January move to Manchester United, despite only signing a new three-year contract in the summer.

Asked whether he hoped QPR could rebuff any big-money bids for the player, Nelsen said: "Of course. I don't think any player that can contribute to getting us up the table and staying in this League will be going anywhere."

Taarabt added: "All Adel has to do is just be consistent and keep throwing out really good 7-8/10 performances every week and not worry about any of the speculation.

"You can't get a 7-8/10 once every five games, if you want to be a great player you have to be consistent, doing it week after week, season after season."
