Neil Warnock was a happy man after seeing his side return to winning ways with a 4-0 victory over Swansea City at Loftus Road.

Goals from Adel Taarabt (2), Jamie Mackie and Heidar Helguson clinched it for the R's and, just moments after the final whistle, Warnock told www.qpr.co.uk: "We played well in the end today.

"We were nervous early on, but the first goal was important and after that we were excellent.

"Second half we came really strong.

"The second goal was crucial and then we grew from strength to strength."

Taarabt's sublime second - QPR's fourth - was the crowning glory for the hosts and Warnock beamed: "Adel's second was a super strike.

"There's not a lot you can do when he's playing like that.

"He's a super lad and his contribution, along with Helguson's, was massive today."

Warnock did, however, bemoan the referee's decision to show Clint Hill a red card, commenting: "I thought the sending off was harsh and we'll be appealing it. Hilly did nothing than go over and try and separate Monk and Mackie.

"It's a nothing sending off from our point of view. It defeats me really."

Warnock added: "The basics were good today.

"We were strong in every department and it's great to get a clean sheet.

"I thought that was Dezza's best display of the season. He and Helguson were excellent for us."

Neil Warnock vowed to keep putting up with Adel Taarabt's shortcomings after QPR's mercurial captain produced a stunning display to sink Swansea 4-0.

The Morocco international, a £1million bargain signing from Tottenham in the summer, was at his unplayable best as he set up the opener for Jamie Mackie, won a penalty for Heidar Helguson to tuck in number two and wrapped up the scoring himself with a fine double.

Yet Taarabt can delight and frustrate in equal measure, as shown before Christmas when his eagerness to impress in front of the television cameras contributed to Rangers' 19-match unbeaten run coming to an end against Watford.

But Rangers boss Warnock said: "Taarabt was excellent, that's what we know he can do.

"It's one of those things you have to accept that sometimes he's the opposite - like he was on the television the other day."

When asked if he feared a top-flight club coming in for his talisman when the transfer window opens next week, Warnock added: "I don't think anyone in the Premier League will want him - who would put up with him?"

A commanding victory for the table-toppers kept some fresh air between themselves and the chasing pack and banished any post-Christmas blues following recent back-to-back defeats.

They went ahead after 16 minutes with Taarabt the instigator, tip-toeing past a succession of Swansea challenges on his way to the edge of the penalty area before teeing up Mackie.

The match exploded into controversy two minutes later when Kyle Walker's marauding run was clumsily halted by Alan Tate 20 yards out.

As players from both sides squared up, Tate and Clint Hill's tete-a-tete was a little too heated for referee Phil Crossley's liking and both left-backs were sent off.

Yet Warnock and opposite number Brendan Rodgers were bemused by the decision.

"I still don't understand the red card so we will be appealing against that - he's not lifted his hands or anything," said Warnock.

"If Clint was going to get himself sent off it wouldn't be for something like that - it was astounding."

Rodgers also confirmed he would look at the incident again before considering an appeal.

After the break Taarabt drew a foul from Ashley Williams to earn the penalty from which Helguson scored and then collected the Icelandic player's knockdown to drill in the third.

But the best was yet to come, with Taarabt swivelling to nutmeg Joe Allen on the left touchline before curling an unstoppable drive to cap a sensational display which left even Rodgers applauding.

"I felt we started really well, created some chances and if we'd taken them it would have been a different game," said Rodgers.

"Up until the sendings-off we looked comfortable. I thought 4-0 was harsh on us.

"But three of the goals we gave away were disappointing - although the final one was a wonderful piece of skill by a top player."

Adel Taarabt kept QPR flying high with an outstanding solo ­performance
Monday December 27,2010
ADEL TAARABT kept QPR flying high with an outstanding solo ­performance that had Premier League class written all over it.

In a feisty clash which saw Swansea’s Alan Tate and Clint Hill of QPR sent off after 19 minutes, Taarabt, 21, showed the talent that marks him out as one of the most-gifted players outside the top flight.

Taarabt, who joined on a permanent deal from Tottenham in August, scored his 10th and 11th goals of the season. He also had an assist in Jamie Mackie’s opening goal and was fouled for a penalty scored by Heidar Helguson.

But manager Neil Warnock is confident that despite interest from watching scouts, he will keep the nucleus of his squad together through the January transfer window.

Warnock said: “Adel was excellent. That’s what we know he can do. It’s just one of those things where you have to accept that there will be days when he is the opposite. Usually when the TV cameras are around .

“I don’t think there will be one [bid ] for any of my players if I am honest. I don’t think any Premier League club will want Adel or Mackie – who would put up with them? I think they will all be with us.”

Swansea boss Brendan Rogers agreed Taarabt was outstanding as his side maintained their ‘record’ of never having won at Loftus Road. He said: “At this level, he has wonderful ability. He has that Premier League quality – the skills, the pace, the power.”

But QPR took time to get into their stride and could have gone behind after four minutes, but Shaun Derry produced a great last-ditch block to deny Craig Beattie.

But Taarabt soon showed his class, riding a number of challenges before playing a delicate pass to Mackie.

He then slid the ball into the bottom corner of the net after 16 minutes, for his first goal since mid-September.

Within three minutes both sides were reduced to 10 men – but both Rodgers and Warnock were unsure why Tate and then Hill were dismissed by referee Phil Crossley.

Warnock said: “Clint has gone in to separate Mackie and Tate. He has not lifted his hands above his head, nor head-butted anyone. The referee said to me, in reflection, that he could have handled the situation better.

“When they look at the video, I don’t see any reason why they won’t rescind the red card.”

Rodgers said he would look at the incident again before considering an appeal. Swansea’s Ashley Williams was perhaps lucky not to have followed them in the second half when he received a yellow card for his trip on Taarabt.

Although there were suspicions the QPR player may have dived, Helguson took the spot-kick and fired his sixth goal of the season.

But Taarabt had the last word. Receiving a headed flick from Helguson, his shot squirmed under the body of Dorus de Vries.

Then, after being brilliantly denied by the trailing feet of the Swansea goalkeeper, Taarabt curled a shot into the net for his side’s fourth.

Rodgers, who suffered his heaviest defeat since taking over five months ago, said it was important the players got this “out of their system” against Barnsley tomorrow evening.

He said: “This was disappointing, but there can’t be a hangover from this. I had said to the players that, whatever happens, win, lose or draw, we have to keep going.

“We have to dust ourselves down and give something back to the supporters who came here.”

QPR (4-4-1-1): Kenny; Walker, Connolly, Gorkss, Hill; Mackie, Derry, Faurlin, Smith (Orr 21); Taarabt (Rowlands 83); Helguson (Hulse 86). Sent off: Hill 19. Goals: Mackie 16, Helguson 62pen, Taarabt 70, 80.

Swansea (4-3-3): De Vries; Rangel, Monk, ­Williams, Tate; Allen, Agustien (Dobbie 71), ­Pratley; Sinclair, Beattie (Easter 71), Dyer (Taylor 20). Booked: Wiliams. Sent off: Tate 19.
Referee: P Crossley (Kent).

Guardian Adel Taarabt's brace against Swansea caps a return to form for QPR
Anna Kessel at Loftus Road

QPR are back in the driving seat, having overturned their December wobble in style. After losing their last two games against Watford and Leeds, ending a run of 19 matches unbeaten, Neil Warnock refused to panic and gave all his players the day off on Christmas Day. They rewarded their manager's faith with a dominant performance against promotion rivals – fourth-placed Swansea – to maintain their lead at the top of the table.

A sparkling performance from the temperamental Adel Taarabt made the difference. Warnock likes to maintain that Taarabt's skilful style alone makes a Loftus Road season ticket worth paying for, and yesterday the red-tipped boots of the 21-year-old were indeed a delight. The former Tottenham player created the first two goals, a dazzling run setting up Jamie Mackie for the opener in the first half before going on another weaving trot to force a penalty out of Ashley Williams for Heidar Helguson to hit home.

Taarabt then followed with two more strikes of his own – the second of which was an exquisite effort in which he nutmegged Joe Allen before wriggling into the box to send a ball over the defenders' heads – taking his total for the season to 11 goals. The Swansea manager, Brendan Rodgers, described him in awed tones as "Premier League quality" – [b]although Warnock refuted that he would be a target in the January transfer window: "Who's going to want to put up with him?" he joked of the capricious midfielder. Taarabt, dubbed the Moroccan magician, received a standing ovation as he was substituted late in the game.[/b

]Without Taarabt's performance, a more unsavoury incident might have hogged the headlines, as both Clint Hill and Alan Tate were sent off after a melee broke out among the players following a foul on Kyle Walker in the first half. The details of the incident remain under dispute – initially there were accusations of a headbutt and an elbow – but Warnock later claimed that the referee had had second thoughts, with Phil Crossley apparently admitting that he "could have handled it better on reflection" after issuing red cards to both Hill and Tate. Warnock will appeal against the card, additionally arguing that there should have been a sending-off for Williams after the foul on Taarabt that provided the penalty.

Brendan Rodgers may also want to lodge an appeal on behalf of Tate, having questioned whether either player should have been shown a red card. "Both players were trying to get away from each other," said Rodgers. "I didn't think it was a sending-off. It spoiled what was supposed to be a good game. I'll have to have another look at it again and weigh it up [whether to appeal]. There was a wee melee but it wasn't a headbutt. I thought the referee could have just stood and once it calmed down, talked to them. "

Rodgers said the incident – along with Taarabt's penalty which he felt could have gone either way – changed the game, after a promising opening half from his side which displayed the attractive football for which they are so renowned for. Crucially, though, Swansea failed to find the decisive ball in the final third of the pitch, and when QPR attacked they capitulated, suffering their heaviest defeat under Rodgers's leadership. The loss leaves Swansea with just one win in six matches.

"There can't be a hangover against Barnsley," promised Rodgers. "We can't dwell on it too long. I said to the players: 'Remember last season Blackpool going to Crystal Palace and losing 4-0 and it turned out all right for them'. So we have to dust ourselves off. These players have done terrific up until now, so we've just got to keep the faith."

Telegraph/Julian Bennetts
No matter what Neil Warnock received for Christmas, the best present he got during 2010 came on Aug 5, when Adel Taarabt agreed to move to QPR from Tottenham for just under £1million.

Since then, the Moroccan has been the talismanic figure who seems set to fire the club back to the Premier League. While others took the Boxing Day spirit a little too literally, as Clint Hill and Alan Tate were harshly sent-off for fighting, Taarabt focussed his efforts on taking Swansea’s defence apart as Rangers cemented their place at the top of the Championship.

He started by setting up Jamie Mackie for the opener before winning the penalty that Heidar Helguson converted.

Yet that was nothing when compared with what was to come. Taarabt’s first was simple enough as he ran on to Helguson’s flick before finishing well, but his second was special as he produced an outrageous nutmeg on Joe Allen before lashing home a 25-yard drive.

And Warnock could not resist praising a player who is surely the most talented outside the Premier League.

“Taarabt was excellent today,” he beamed after his side bounced back from successive defeats. “That was what we want, and what we know he can do – though we have to accept there will be days when he will be the opposite. All-round it was a super performance.”

The only thing that displeased Warnock was the red card for Hill, with both managers admitting they are likely to appeal as Phil Crossley sent-off both the Rangers man and Tate despite neither appearing to raise their hands.

That completed a poor day for Swansea, though, and having extended their record of never having won at Loftus Road, Brendan Rodgers demanded a reaction.

“We are better than we are showing at the moment,” he said. “We owe the supporters and ourselves a result and a performance.”

Queens Park Rangers 4 Swansea 0: Boxing Day! Two sent off as league leaders run riot to thrash promotion rivals at Loftus Road
By Sportsmail Reporter

Adel Taarabt got QPR's npower Championship title tilt back on track with another virtuoso display to sink Swansea.

Rangers' mercurial captain set up the opener for Jamie Mackie, won a penalty for Heidar Helguson to tuck in number two and wrapped up the scoring himself with a stunning double.

A commanding victory for Neil Warnock's table-toppers keeps some fresh air between themselves and the chasing pack and banished any post-Christmas blues following recent back-to-back defeats.

Boxing day: A mass melee ensues after Swansea's Alan Tate elbows QPR defender Clint Hill square in the jaw

There was little in the way of festive cheer on display at Loftus Road, though, as a bad-tempered first half saw two straight red cards.

Clint Hill and Alan Tate were the recipients after the latter's foul on Kyle Walker sparked a sudden outbreak of handbags.

But Rangers comfortably won the 10-a-side encounter to put another dent in Swansea's promotion challenge - they have picked up just eight points from their last eight games.

The hosts went ahead against the run of play after 16 minutes with Taarabt the instigator, tiptoeing past a succession of Swansea challenges on his way to the edge of the penalty area.

Early bath: Both Tate and Hill were sent off in the 19th minute after their dust-up

And where, in recent matches, the Moroccan would have attempted to skip past a couple more for good measure, he instead squared the ball for Mackie who drilled a first-time shot past Dorus de Vries to end a 15-game goal drought.

The match exploded into controversy two minutes later when Walker's marauding run was clumsily halted by Tate 20 yards out.

As players from both sides squared up, Tate and Hill's tete-a-tete was a little too heated for referee Phil Crossley's liking and both left-backs were sent packing.

Under pressure: Swansea star Joe Allen struggles to get the ball under control after QPR's Alejandro Faurlin holds him up

The Swans attempted to hit back before half-time but Joe Allen blazed their best chance over.

As the second half got under way Taarabt twice almost conjured up a second goal, a blur of stepovers setting up Kaspars Gorkss and Mackie in quick succession only for De Vries to save both times.

But it was third time lucky on the hour as Taarabt charged into the area and drew a clumsy foul from Ashley Williams, allowing Helguson to dispatch the spot-kick for his eighth goal of the season.

Done and dusted: Adel Taarabt completed a fine win for Neil Warnock's men with the fourth goal of the game at Loftus Road

Taarabt was not finished, though, and in the 70th minute he collected Helguson's knock-down and hit a fierce drive under De Vries for number three.

And 10 minutes later, with Swansea by now sick of the sight of Rangers' number seven, Taarabt jinked his way inside from the left touchline and unleashed a superb 20-yard curler which De Vries could only help into the net.

Taarabt trooped off to a deserved standing ovation as Rangers shrugged off their recent blip and proved they will take some catching in 2011.

NO wonder the man in front of the directors' box at Loftus Road waves a Moroccan flag.

Queens Park Rangers's fans enjoyed suggesting that Adel Taarabt was too good for Swansea City to handle.

And the truth was that the visiting contingent could not really argue.

Taarabt was the leading light on what turned into a gloomy afternoon for Swansea, who got beaten up on Boxing Day and saw Alan Tate sent off as both teams finished with ten men.

Taarabt had a sensational afternoon, creating one goal for Jamie Mackie, winning the penalty which Heidar Helguson converted and netting twice himself.

Without him, this would been a different story.

With their African inspiration involved, Rangers mauled Brendan Rodgers's Swansea like no other side has.

Beaten in successive games for the first time since Roberto Martinez left the Liberty, Swansea must find a response when Barnsley come to Wales tomorrow.


Rodgers had shaken his team up after below-par displays against Millwall and Sheffield United, naming Darren Pratley and Kemy Agustien in a more powerful-looking midfield.

Out went Andrea Orlandi and Mark Gower as Swansea sought to record what would have been one of their results of the season.

Rangers have been the success story of the Championship campaign to date, avoiding defeat in each of their first 19 league games.

But Neil Warnock's men came into this one on the back of successive losses, so both sides were seeking an upturn in form.

It was Swansea who looked more determined to carve out a Christmas win in the early stages, Scott Sinclair coming close to an opener after just four minutes when he swept Joe Allen's corner too close to Paddy Kenny.

Ashley Williams and Craig Beattie both showed an interest in the rebound, but Rangers scrambled clear.

Swansea came again, Sinclair lashing a long-ranger too high before Tate's deflected 20-yarder was scooped up by Kenny.

So it was tough on the visitors when the Hoops snatched the advantage with the their first attack of any real significance.

Sinclair gave the ball away on halfway, but Swansea still had opportunities to clear the danger.

They did not manage it, instead allowing Taarabt to weave his web on the edge of the box before squaring for Mackie to drive the ball crisp and low past Dorus de Vries.

Then came the bad will to all men, Tate ending Kyle Walker's run with what was deemed as a foul and the handbags following.

Mackie was the instigator, the striker aggravating Tate by suggesting to the referee that he should be sent off.

Hill joined the argument later, the Scouser opting for a wrestle with Tate, and both left-backs ended up seeing red.

Rodgers sacrificed Nathan Dyer as a result, switching to a 4-3-2 formation with Sinclair playing alongside Beattie.

Despite the loss of a winger, Swansea stuck to their attacking principles and were unfortunate not to have drawn level by the break given their control of the game.

Allen blazed over after a sweet pass from the classy Agustien, Beattie cut in from the left and curled a shot just beyond the far post.

Williams was busy, the centre-back advancing into enemy territory to unleash two long-range drives, the second of which had Kenny scrambling to save.

All the while Rangers carried a threat through Taarabt, the Moroccan international forcing one save from de Vries and teeing up chances for Helguson and Bradley Orr, both of which were wasted.

Swansea threatened once more early in the second period, Angel Rangel seeing a header blocked by Orr.

Rangel's run and cross meant danger for Rangers minutes later, but Beattie could not get a shot away.

Swansea were right in it at this stage, but just past the hour their hopes were killed off as Helguson's flick sent Taarabt running at Williams.

The former Spurs man flicked the ball inside and went sprawling, and the referee pointed to the spot.

Helguson sent de Vries the wrong way, but at least Swansea still had 10 men as Williams saw yellow rather than red.

Here was a crumb of comfort for Swansea in what would develop into a torrid second half.

Rangers' third goal came from another Helguson flick, Taarabt firing low and through de Vries's attempted block.

The hosts were now cutting Swansea open at will, and it needed a stunning double save from de Vries to keep out Helguson and Taarabt on 76 minutes.

But Taarabt was not finished, the former Spurs man nutmegging Allen before curling his second goal of the afternoon into the far corner of the net.

Here was a spectacular end to what was a spectacular disappointment for Swansea.

Now to put things right.

Adel Taarabt stole the show, as his double helped the R's serve up a festive feast at Loftus Road.

The magical Moroccan was at his very best, taking his league tally to double figures (11) with another breathtaking display that saw him involved in all four of QPR's goals.

It was no more than Neil Warnock's men deserved for an accomplished display - especially in the second half.

Rangers took the lead on 16 minutes, after Jamie Mackie thumped Taarabt's square ball home from 18 yards, before Clint Hill and Alan Tate were both sent off following the latter's challenge on Kyle Walker.

The hosts went into overdrive after the break.

Heidar Helguson put the R's two up from the spot, after Taarabt was unjustly hauled down by Ashley Williams.

It was then left to Taarabt to cap a quite splendid victory.

The gifted playmaker notched his first of the afternoon following Helguson's flick-on, as he buried the ball under Dorus De Vries from the edge of the box.

Taarabt then produced an exceptional moment of skill that raised the roof in W12, nutmegging Joe Allen before rifling home a magnificent effort that darted into the bottom right-hand corner from 25 yards.

QPR made two changes in a 4-2-3-1 formation for the visit of Brendan Rodgers' Swans.

Alejandro Faurlin - who missed the R's trip to Leeds United last weekend owing to an illness - came back into the starting eleven to replace Bradley Orr, as did Helguson at the expense of Rob Hulse.

Paddy Kenny was between the sticks for Rangers, behind a back four of Walker, Matt Connolly, Kaspars Gorkss and Hill.

Faurlin returned to join Shaun Derry as protection for the Hoops rearguard in holding midfield, behind the attacking trio of Mackie, Taarabt and Tommy Smith.

Helguson led the Rangers attack.

The R's went into this one hungry to avenge back-to-back defeats against Watford and Leeds.

Last time out, QPR picked up only their second league defeat in 21 fixtures, after Max Gradel's deadly double was enough to see off Neil Warnock's men at Elland Road.

Swansea too lost their last match, after tasting a 1-0 defeat at managerless Sheffield United.

But, with both sides still sitting pretty in the top six of the npower Championship prior to kick-off, this one was all-but guaranteed to be a real Christmas cracker.

Both sides started with real intent, though it was Kenny who was first forced into action, after he pulled off a stunning save on four minutes to thwart Scott Sinclair.

Sinclair picked up possession from 12-yards out following a corner from the right and, when his resultant low drive was superbly blocked by Kenny, a forest of R's legs were on the line to clear the ball to safety.

But play soon switched to the other end, where De Vries was forced into a smart save of his own to tip Helguson's looping header wide, after Taarabt's high ball into the box.

QPR were now on top and, just past the quarter of the hour, Mackie fired Rangers into the lead.

Taarabt played the architect, weaving his way past three challenges before laying the ball to the Scotland marksman on the edge of the box.

Mackie made no mistake thereafter, leaving De Vries with no chance as he buried a low effort into the bottom left-hand corner of the net.

The tie sparked into controversy just three minutes later.

Walker went on a swashbuckling run from right-back, brushing aside four challenges before he was cynically hauled to the ground by Tate.

A melee ensued where, among the commotion, Hill and Tate came head-to-head after the latter clashed with Mackie.

Hill and Tate were duly shown their marching orders, as referee Mr Crossley sent both players off for violent conduct.

Taarabt almost etched a second R's goal from the resultant free-kick, which was excellently tipped around the bar by De Vries.

Helguson missed a glorious chance to double QPR's advantage just before the break.

Moroccan magician Taarabt was again in the thick of the action and, when his beautifully-struck free-kick from the right was met by the head of Helguson, he could only nod agonisingly wide of the target.

The second half began as somewhat of a scrappy affair, with neither QPR nor the Swans giving an inch.

However, it was the R's who continued to create the better chances.

Fantastic skill from Taarabt saw him round past three players before sliding a ball clever reverse pass to Walker, who cut-in from the left before seeing his blasted effort - that seemed destined to find the net - blocked for a corner.

But QPR didn't have to wait too much longer for a second, as they doubled their lead on 61 minutes.

Taarabt picked up possession on the left-hand edge of the box and, when his attempt to skip past Williams was unfairly halted by the Jacks defender, the referee was left with no option but to point for the spot.

Helguson was coolness personified from 12 yards, as he sent the keeper the wrong way and slided the ball into the bottom left-hand corner.

It was just rewards for the Icelandic striker, whose initial header originally freed Taarabt, who won the penalty.

The R's second made for an open finish, and the home side - especially Taarabt - took full advantage.

The former Spurs ace grabbed a dazzling double, as he fashioned two strikes of the highest quality.

His first was a smart finish, as Taarabt got on the end of Helguson's knock-down before smashing the ball under De Vries from 18-yards out.

But his second was simply stunning.

It was an unbelievable display of skill from Taarabt, who nutmegged Allen before drilling home an outstanding effort from 25-yards out that left the keeper with no chance.
