London: Striker Peter Odemwingie has dismissed criticism from his club West Bromwich Albion over his bizarre attempt to force through a transfer to Queens Park Rangers on Thursday.

Amid surreal scenes on transfer deadline day, the Nigerian was shown on television waiting outside QPR's Loftus Road stadium in his car, apparently in the mistaken belief that West Brom had agreed to sell him.

QPR refused to let him enter their ground and West Brom subsequently issued a statement criticising his conduct, with chairman Jeremy Peace accusing Odemwingie of acting "wholly unprofessionally".
