QPR boss Hughes won't punish Taarabt over shisha pipe

QPR boss Mark Hughes won't punish Adel Taarabt for his shisha pipe incident.

He was pictured smoking a shisha pipe with Arsenal's Moroccan striker Marouane Chamakh.

But Hughes will not punish his player. He said: "If you're a professional athlete, you shouldn't really smoke but a lot of players do.

"What Adel was doing was a social activity and that is how he relaxes."
