Rangers to keep Taarabt

FOOTBALL: QPR manager Neil Warnock believes Adel Taarabt can be a star of the upcoming Premier League season after the Moroccan’s proposed move to Paris Saint Germain fell through. He said: “You’ve got to have matchwinners in the Premier League and he’s just that.” Rangers are chasing the signing of Southampton winger Jason Puncheon, while former West Ham defender Danny Gabbidon has joined on a free transfer. The Hammers, meanwhile, will submit a new improved bid for Reading striker Shane Long.
