ADEL Taarabt's 19th goal of the season set Rangers on their way to a 2-0 win at Watford that clinched the title – but he immediately deflected praise onto his team-mates.
The Moroccan also re-iterated the part boss Neil Warnock has played in his success this year as the Championship player of the year.
“Of course, it's not about one player,” he said. “Only one player never wins you the game. It's about the team, the squad and everyone at the club.
“Of course I do the last job, to score goals – that's why people think about me. But you have to give credit to the whole club.
“I don't mind the attention. I'm very happy always to score for my team and give them the winner and they can trust me. Every game, I try to do my best."
Speaking of his relationship with Warnock, Taarabt said: “If I make a season like this, it is a lot because of him [Neil Warnock].
“He gives me 100 per cent belief and trusts me a lot and if I've not been good in one or two games, he's still played me. He did a lot for me.
“I think in football, all the time you have to meet somebody who gives you a chance and for me, it's Neil. Nobody else came for me like him and I hope it can continue like this."
Taarabt added: “I hope QPR will do good next season. I hope with this manager, in fact I know, they can achieve something. I don't know what is the target for next season, but now we just have to enjoy the moment.
"The manager will tell us in pre-season what the target is for next season.”
