QPR boss Harry Redknapp has explained his omission of Adel Taarabt.

Redknapp claims he missed recent TV criticism from Alan Shearer on Taarabt's effectiveness in front of goal, the manager pretty much agreed with the former England striker.

He explained: "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.

"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."
