Taye Taiwo in gay chant rap

QPR have issued a warning to fans about offensive chanting this weekend — just hours after signing a player who was banned for singing a homophobic song last year.

AC Milan left-back Taye Taiwo agreed to join the Hoops on loan for the rest of the season.
QPR hope the Nigerian will receive international clearance in time to make his debut in the FA Cup showdown with rivals Chelsea on Saturday. Both clubs yesterday appealed for fans to watch what they chant during the fourth-round tie.

The match takes place just four days before Blues skipper John Terry appears in court to answer a charge he allegedly racially abused QPR’s Anton Ferdinand during October’s fiery Prem clash — a claim JT denies.

If Taiwo plays, he will have to behave better than he did after scoring the winner to help Marseille beat Montpellier 1-0 in the French League Cup final last April.

Following the final whistle he grabbed a microphone and led fans in an expletive-ridden homophobic song about their bitter rivals Paris St Germain.

French chiefs fined him £17,000 and banned Taiwo, 26, for one game.
The FA Cup tie will be the first time the sides have met since the Terry-Ferdinand row broke.
