MAIL/Neil Ashton - Revealed: Kenny's cruel phone rant mocking fellow keeper Green over QPR defeat
Sportsmail can reveal goalkeeper Paddy Kenny's amazing voicemail rant to a member of QPR's coaching staff, attacking the decision to replace him with Robert Green.
The message was left on Sunday at 1.30am. It mocks former England keeper Green's performance during the 5-0 opening day home defeat by Swansea.
In the message, Kenny, who appears to have been celebrating Leeds’s victory over Wolves on Saturday lunchtime, says: ‘It’s Rob Green’s agent here, I just wondered, er, how you got on today. I didn’t really see the f****** score but I heard it didn’t go too well.
Phone rants: Former QPR keeper Paddy Kenny is now at Leeds United
‘But, never mind, Robbo’s a good keeper. Don’t you worry about that, he’s a good keeper.’
Kenny then hung up.
The content of the voicemail was disclosed to Sportsmail by a QPR source. It has been obtained with the full consent and knowledge of the club official concerned and was one of a number of abusive messages left by the Leeds keeper that night.
He bombarded Rangers owner Tony Fernandes and another member of QPR’s coaching staff with text messages and voicemails.
The member of Mark Hughes’ technical team was out of the country at the time and had his alarm set for 4am in order to catch a flight back to London.
He was disturbed on Saturday evening by a number of phone calls and text messages poking fun at the decision to replace him with the former England No 1.
Green, his country’s first-choice keeper for the opening game of the 2010 World Cup against the USA, had a difficult Rangers debut.
The former West Ham man failed to stop Swansea striker Michu’s speculative 25-yard effort in the eighth minute and conceded another four goals.
Kenny clearly enjoyed the moment after linking up with Warnock at Elland Road in the summer for £900,000.
QPR lodged a formal complaint with Leeds in an email sent to Elland Road on Sunday and want the FA to step in.
Kenny was asked for his version of events at the training ground on Monday and has denied any wrongdoing.
Leeds chief Warnock, preparing for Saturday’s Championship clash against Peterborough, refused to comment. The former Rangers manager, sacked last season after winning promotion to the Premier League, is conducting his own investigation.
