QPR boss Harry Redknapp says Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere should be cut some slack.

The Arsenal midfielder, 22 was pictured puffing on a cig at a pool party in Las Vegas.

But Redknapp said: "Johan Cruyff, apparently when he was in his prime, was a big smoker.

"I'm not condoning it but an awful lot of foreign players smoke.

"Arsene Wenger wasn't happy last time he was caught smoking but he is a young player."
