Faurlin, who suffered an identical injury on his right knee in January 2012, was stretchered off after landing awkwardly on his left leg in the 77th-minute at Loftus Road.

And scans have confirmed Rangers' worst fears, with the club not expecting the 27-year-old to play again for at least six months.

QPR's head of medical services, Peter Florida James, told the club's official website: "It's a really nasty cruciate injury.

"We're all desperately disappointed for Ali, but he is a great professional and I'm sure he'll work just as hard at recovering from this injury as he did from his previous ACL rupture."
