Tottenham midfielder Adel Taarabt is in hot water at QPR.
The Daily Star says Taarabt, on loan from Tottenham, was jeered by some home fans after he missed a second-half chance instead of setting up a team-mate.
Taarabt, 20, reacted by waving his arms in their direction.
And R's boss Jim Magilton said: "He's a wonderful footballer and at times he will infuriate everyone like he infuriates me.
"But he's very much a prized asset of ours. If he's reacted, he's been a little bit silly - but that's what you get with talented footballers.
"They can be a bit headstrong at times.
"Will I put an arm around him? No, I'll probably throttle him for not passing! "
