Furious Warnock slams `gutter type' Diouf

08 January 2011 07:00
QPR manager Neil Warnock launched an astonishing personal attack on Blackburn's El-Hadji Diouf after claiming the Senegal international abused Jamie Mackie while he lay on the pitch with a broken leg. Mackie sustained a double fracture in a 50-50 clash with defender Gael Givet which saw both players carried off on stretchers in Rovers' 1-0 FA Cup third round victory at Ewood Park. Warnock alleged Diouf, no stranger to controversy during his career in England, had taunted his injured player despite the seriousness of the injury being apparent. Junior Hoilett struck Rovers' winner in the 76th-minute. "He's broken both bones, his tibia and his fibula, and he's gone to hospital, but will travel home with us," said Warnock. "The lads were furious with El-Hadji Diouf; he (Mackie) had broken his leg and he is calling him all sorts on the pitch. "There was no need to put the finger up and call him a disgrace and even the Blackburn people were embarrassed. I can't abide people like that, I don't know why he wants to take on the world every week. "For many years I have thought he (Diouf) was the gutter type - I was going to call him a sewer rat, but that might be insulting to sewer rats. He's the lowest of the low and I can't see him being at Blackburn much longer."
