Mackie joins in condemnation of Blackburn's Diouf

QPR striker Jamie Mackie has joined with his boss Neil Warnock in hammering Blackburn Rovers striker El-Hadji Diouf over the player's alleged behaviour towards the Rangers hitman as he lay badly injured with a broken leg. Mackie sustained a double fracture in a 50-50 clash with defender Gael Givet during Rovers' 1-0 FA Cup third-round victory at Ewood Park on Saturday.

The former Liverpool man is no stranger to controversy and Mackie describing Diouf's alleged behaviour as "repulsive".

The 25-year-old said in the Sun: "I'm lying on the floor with a bad injury and even his team-mates were embarrassed by what Diouf was saying.

"There's no room for that in the game - and in my opinion he's an absolute disgrace.

"I'm trying hard not to think about Diouf. That's because when I do it makes me want to snap my cast off and run up there and find him.

"There's no place in football for the likes of Diouf. There's a line and he crossed it. Diouf was repulsive."
