Alejandro Faurlin reacts on Twitter after playing for QPR Under-21 side

Queens Park Rangers midfielder Alejandro Faurlin continues his recovery from a long-term injury.

Queens Park Rangers midfielder Alejandro Faurlin has taken to social networking site Twitter to express his delight at turning out for the Under-21side today.

The 28-year-old Argentine played the entire 90 minutes of the match between the QPR Under-21s and their Norwich City counterparts at Harlington.

Although QPR lost the match 5-4, Faurlin was happy to have completed his first full 90 minutes since returning from injury.

Faurlin has not played a single minute of competitive football since August, when he suffered a third cruciate ligament injury in as many years.

In the past two seasons, the former Instituto man has featured just 12 times for London outfit QPR.

However, the Argentine will not be able to play in the Premier League for Rangers this season if he does regain full fitness, as he is not part of their 25-man squad.

Faurlin, who has been on the books of QPR since 2009, is out of contract at the end of the season.

QPR are currently second from bottom in the Premier League table with 27 points from 35 matches, seven points behind 17th-placed Hull City.
