Neil Warnock lift for Adel Taarabt

ADEL TAARABT has been reassured he is still QPR's main man.

The Moroccan maestro led Rangers to the Championship title last term.
But new signing Joey Barton was immediately given the captain's armband and the club's glut of other big-name arrivals have also pushed Taarabt out of the limelight.
Hoops boss Neil Warnock insists, though, temperamental Taarabt, 22, remains his team's star player.
Warnock, whose side face west London neighbours Fulham tomorrow, said: "Adel's been the main man. He is our shining light and has been instrumental to where we are now.
"He's played well this season. Having the other players in has given him a lift because he is just concentrating on playing. I think you can see how hard he is trying."
Ex-Spurs ace Taarabt missed out on a big-money move to Paris St-Germain when it broke down in the summer. Warnock added: "The ability that Adel has got is not in question.
"He's got to put the other part into his game and is trying hard to do that. I've said to him if you look at the top clubs like Barcelona, all the players work their socks off.
"I don't think he is thinking about his next move — not now. I think he just wants to play well and keep his position in the team. He is a lovely lad, trains hard — that's how he is."
Warnock last night slammed Manchester City bad-boy Carlos Tevez and said: "He's done himself a load of harm.
"There are many English and foreign players who kiss the badge when really all they are bothered about is how much they take home at the end of the day.
"I think the sooner he leaves the country the better."
