QPR midfielder Adel Taarabt is demanding more support from manager Neil Warnock.

The gifted but unpredictable star is unhappy with some of the verbal goading he has been subjected to, and sought out his boss to let his feelings be known.

Controversial Taarabt, 22, thinks Warnock should bring the other players into line and tell them not to 'pick' on him so much, says the People.

Taarabt has been his own worst enemy at times but he was unsettled by the way he took abuse for recent displays - and was removed from penalty duties in last week's home win over Chelsea.
