Faurlin likely to miss rest of season

Argentine midfielder suffers ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in FA Cup tie

Faurlin has played in every Barclays Premier League match for QPR this season

QPR midfielder Alejandro Faurlin is "very likely" to miss the rest of the Barclays Premier League season after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament in the FA Cup draw against MK Dons.

Rangers head physio Nigel Cox said on Monday that a scan on Sunday had confirmed the damaged.

He told QPR's website: "We are now waiting to see the consultant of our choice which we expect to happen in the next few days.

"We will now work hard, as will he, to prepare for next season."

"The important thing now is to get the swelling down and prepare for what looks likely to be a reconstruction."

Faurlin has been a mainstay in the QPR midfield this season, appearing in every Barclays Premier League match.

Cox added: "It is always difficult to put a definite timescale on something such as this, but it looks very likely that Ale's season is over.

"We will now work hard, as will he, to prepare for next season."

Rangers are looking to move up the Barclays Premier League table after a poor run of eight matches without a win.

QPR are currently in the process of selecting a new manager after Neil Warnock's departure was confirmed on Sunday.
