QPR forward Heidar Helguson has been referred to a specialist and looks likely to remain sidelined for at least a couple more weeks.

The Icelander, 34, played for much of the campaign while nursing an ongoing groin complaint but has not featured since being substituted during the FA Cup defeat against Chelsea in January.

Rangers were hopeful that Helguson would make a quick return to action but he has continued to struggle with the problem.

He may be able to train with the rest of the squad later this week but boss Mark Hughes does not expect him to be available for Saturday’s vital game against fellow strugglers Bolton.

“He’s still a number of weeks away yet,” said Hughes. “He’s progressing though and has upped his training.”

Helguson is QPR’s top scorer this season with nine goals West London Sport

The Manchester United striker, Federico Macheda, has been fined £15,000 and warned about his future conduct after admitting making homophobic comments on Twitter.

The 20-year-old Italian, who is on loan at Queens Park Rangers, was charged by the Football Association last month along with the Newcastle forward, Nile Ranger, and Walsall's Manny Smith.

A Football Association statement on Monday read: "Federico Macheda has been fined £15,000 and warned as to his future conduct after the Manchester United player admitted use of an abusive and/or insulting word including a reference to a person's sexual orientation.

"Macheda had requested a personal hearing in relation to the charge for comments he made on Twitter."

Ranger and Smith were last week fined £6,000 and £1,200 respectively and also handed a warning by the FA after admitting making homophobic comments on Twitter.

The West Ham midfielder Ravel Morrison was also recently fined £7,000 by the FA in response to a homophobic remark made on Twitter.

Morrison, who completed an undisclosed switch to Upton Park from Manchester United at the end of January, is reported to have made the comment in response to another Twitter user.

The 19-year-old was also warned as to his future conduct by the FA. Guardian
