ANGEL Rangel will undergo surgery next week after suffering a torn Achilles during our match with Luton Town on Tuesday evening.
Dr Imtiaz Ahmad, QPR’s Head of Medical Services, confirmed: “This is desperately disappointing news for Angel.
“He will have the operation on Monday, which is being conducted by a leading foot and ankle specialist.
“Rehab for this type of injury can take between six-to-nine months.
“Angel was naturally disappointed when the injury was confirmed but he has come to grips with it very quickly and is ok within himself.”
QPR boss Mark Warburton added: “This is a devastating blow for Angel.
“He has been a great servant for the club and a fantastic mentor to our younger players.
“Dr Ahmad has made sure that one of the best specialists in the country, if not Europe, will be conducting the surgery so he is in the very best hands.
“It wouldn’t be right to make any further comment regarding Angel’s future until after the surgery has been completed.”
