The ever running saga of Adel Taarabt continues as he is still training away from the QPR first team as it’s now been two months since he last played for the R’s.
It’s been a turbulent season for the Moroccan as he was accused of being three stone over weight by manager Harry Redknapp.
Taarabt then replied saying he is in the best shape he has even been and doesn’t know why he isn’t in the team.
The whole affair was quickly put to bed as the issue threatened to make a bad start even worse for Rangers.
Yet the 25-year-old still hasn’t appeared since QPR’s defeat to West Ham in early October. A groin Injury has gotten in the way but Taarabt is still yet to feature in the squad.

Former teammate Tom Huddlestone has praised his fellow midfielder as having the best raw talent at Tottenham during their time at the club.
Unfortunately for the troubled player you need more than raw talent as Gareth Bale and Luka Modric have proved, both players were at spurs at the same time as Huddlestone and Taarabt.
Redknapp, meanwhile, insisted that he doesn't hold a grudge over the forward, as he told reporters:
“It’s up to Adel when he will get back in the team, only he can get himself fit and ready to play. You can take a horse to water, but how far’s the water? I’d be only too pleased to have him involved again. I don’t hold grudges against him.
