Queens Park Rangers have had many good players over the years but few can compare to Adel Taarabt when it comes to natural ability.
The attacking midfielder, who is currently at Benfica, is loved by the Hoops fans after his spell with the R’s earlier in his career, with his role in their Championship title win back in 2011 particularly fondly remembered. Incredibly, the Moroccan weighed in with 19 goals and 21 assists in that season – which saw him named as the best player in the second tier.

Swansea and Preston at home were special. Got a lot of time for the goal against Fulham at home. I mean, the audacity of the finish. pic.twitter.com/94JvyPqfY9

His goal against Preston seems to always be overlooked, it was absolutely outrageous 🔥

His second at home Fulham, outside of the boot, best goal I’ve ever seen live.

Thinking about it, i cannot think of a goal that isn’t outrageous. They were all exceptional. For me, his goal to put us 1-0 against @WatfordFC when I was mascot. Was one of the best days of my life 🔵⚪️🔵⚪️ @QPR

I loved the 1st at Cardiff away. Just for the sheer importance of it. Beautiful goal. His best though was either Preston or Swansea at home. Pure filth.
