Rangers have signed Spurs midfielder Adel Taarabt on loan until the end of the season.
Taarabat was born on the 24 May 1989 in Berre-l'Étang, France and is of Moroccan origin.
He has represented France at U-16, U-17 and U-18 level and is able to play as a Second Striker, Attacking Midfielder or on either wing, and is well known for his dribbling ability and shooting from distance.On the 11th February he made his full international debut for Morocco in a friendly against the Czech Republic
Taarabt signed for Spurs on loan in January 2007 from French side Racing Club de Lens, and within two months he made his first senior appearance, coming on as a substitute on the 85th minute against West Ham United. He made an immediate impact with his first touch leading to the 3-3 equaliser as a driving run from half-way was ended by a foul on the edge of the box. Dimitar Berbatov scored with the resulting free kick.
He signed for Spurs on a permanent deal in June 2007 and has made 9 starts for them from the bench.
Upon signing for Rangers he told the press "Other clubs came in for me, but QPR is a team that plays football in the way that I like to play.This is why I chose them over the others."
Racing Lens in the North of France is a well know factory of footballing talent.Former stars who have come through the ranks at the Stade Bollaert include such names as: Olivier Dacourt,Papa Bouba Diop,Rigobert Song, and Antoine Sibierski.
