Queens Park Rangers football club manager Harry Redknapp in London on November 26, 2012. Portugal defender Jose Bosingwa has reportedly been fined two weeks’ wages by QPR after refusing to be a substitute for last weekend’s victory over Fulham.

Portugal defender Jose Bosingwa has reportedly been fined two weeks’ wages by QPR after refusing to be a substitute for last weekend’s victory over Fulham.

QPR manager Harry Redknapp punished Bosingwa after taking exception to the former Chelsea right-back’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.
