QPR midfielder Alejandro Faurlin has been ruled out for the rest of the season after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament in Saturday's FA Cup third-round tie at MK Dons.

The Argentinian was stretchered off towards the end of Rangers' 1-1 draw. "I just wanna let u know guys, its bad news for me I have rupture of the ACL, I'm out for the rest of the season! Really disappointed sad!" he posted on Twitter.

"Things never been easy for me! But for sure I will be back stronger!! I accept this test as professional and person as well!!"

Faurlin, 25, joined QPR in summer 2009 from Argentinian club Instituto and helped the club win promotion to the Premier League last season.

The west London side are currently just a point above the relegation zone and have lost six and drawn two of their last eight league matches, a run which on Sunday cost manager Neil Warnock his job.
