QPR manager Harry Redknapp insists he bears no grudge against Adel Taarabt following their public spat this week.
Redknapp dubbed the Moroccan ‘the worst professional I’ve ever come across’ and slammed his training habits with Taarabt hitting back by criticizing the QPR training regime and releasing a picture of his stomach.
Despite the row, Redknapp bears no ill will towards the midfielder and he still hopes Taarabt can play a role in QPR’s fight to stay in the Premier League.

"I don’t hold grudges," Redknapp said. "He got pushed into writing a load of stuff that wasn’t true. I don’t think he’s been fined and I wouldn’t want to fine him.
"I’ve always been a manager where people go, ‘You do love a problem player’. Yes, I have. The big difference is the ones I’ve had before keep producing on the pitch.
"Unfortunately at the moment Adel needs to produce. He’s got great talent. He could be an incredible, incredible footballer for this football club."
Redknapp’s team are currently rooted to the foot of the Premier League table with just four points from eight games.
