Loftus Road star fined.
Former Chelsea defender Jose Bosingwa has been fined two week’s wages by QPR after refusing to be a substitute for last week’s victory against Fulham.
QPR manager Harry Redknapp punished the Portuguese defender Bosingwa after taking exception to the 32-year-old’s angry reaction to being dropped from the starting line-up for the west London derby at Loftus Road.
Bosingwa, who joined QPR in pre-season on a contract reportedly worth £50,000 a week, was said to have stormed away from the stadium after being dropped, forcing Redknapp to change his substitutes.
In Bosingwa’s absence, QPR won 2-1 to record their first Premier League victory of a troubled campaign.
The 30-year-old has also been left out of the squad for Saturday’s game at Newcastle, although QPR claim that is due to an injury rather than his breach of discipline.
