Savage happy to snuff out threat of Taarabt again

Robbie Savage
ROBBIE Savage was pleased with the job he did to snuff out the threat of the Championship's player of the season, Adel Taarabt, as Derby County claimed a hard-earned goalless draw against leaders Queens Park Rangers.
Savage man-marked Taarabt at Loftus Road last night and managed, again, to frustrate the talented Moroccan international, who was substituted in the 71st minute.
"The plan was to man-mark Taarabt, which I've done four times now and, four times, he hasn't had a kick," said Savage.
