QPR boss Redknapp defends Arsenal's Wilshere over smoking controversy

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."
