Adel Taarabt stormed off after being substituted at half-time as QPR crashed 6-0 at Fulham – then caught the bus home.
Fans were stunned to see the temperamental forward, still dressed in a club tracksuit, waiting at a bus stop near the ground before the game had even finished. He had been replaced by DJ Campbell.
QPR boss Neil Warnock said his team defended like “Sunday League players” but refused to condemn Taarabt.
Warnock said: “That’s not my problem. I’ve no idea. I’ve got more worries than individuals at the moment. I don’t think you can blame Adel Taarabt today.
“You’re going to get days when Adel throws his toys out the pram. If you’re not bothered about being subbed.. I’d rather have players like him.
“I’m not concerned about it. You write what you like.”
