The ESPN FC crew give their take on the war of words between QPR's Adel Taarabt and Harry Redknapp over Taarabt's fitness.

Queens Park Rangers defender Rio Ferdinand is planning to retire at the end of the 2014-15 season.

The former England and Manchester United centre-back joined the Loftus Road club on a free transfer this summer following 12 years at Old Trafford, but told 'The Jonathan Ross Show' -- broadcast on Oct. 25 at 10:30 p.m. on ITV1 -- he could hang up his boots at the end of the current Premier League campaign.

The ESPN FC crew react to Harry Redknapp's comments concerning Adel Taarabt's weight issues, and believe this may be the last straw with the already-out-of-favour QPR midfielder.

QPR chairman Tony Fernandes has ordered manager Harry Redknapp and forward Adel Taarabt to put a halt to their public row about the player's fitness.

Redknapp had refused to relent on his claim after Sunday's 3-2 Liverpool defeat that Taarabt is "about three stone overweight."

Taarabt released pictures holding up his shirt in a bid to dispel Redknapp's jibes, claiming the former Tottenham boss has used him as a scapegoat for QPR's early-season troubles.

Yet on Tuesday the war of words escalated as...

The ESPN FC crew react to Harry Redknapp's comments concerning Adel Taarabt's weight issues, and believe this may be the last straw with the already-out-of-favour QPR midfielder.

QPR manager Harry Redknapp has continued his war of words with Adel Taarabt by telling The Sun that the only reason for his midfielder's recent weight loss is a bout of tonsillitis.

The Loftus Road boss attacked the 25-year-old following QPR's 3-2 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday, claiming he cannot "protect people who are about three stone overweight."
