QPR director of football Les Ferdinand has been charged with misconduct by the Football Association for allegedly insulting a match official.
The charge for the former England striker is in relation to an incident after the final whistle of QPR’s Premier League game against Tottenham at Loftus Road last Saturday, a match Rangers lost 2-1.
An FA statement read: “It is alleged that Ferdinand, director of football at QPR, used abusive and/or insulting words and/or behaviour towards a match official in or around the tunnel area after the end of the fixture.”
Ferdinand has until 6pm on Friday to respond to the charge.
QPR were denied two penalties against Tottenham, as Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris brought down Mauricio Isla, and Nabil Bentaleb appeared to block Charlie Austin's shot with his hands late on.
The defeat leaves Rangers 18th in the table and three points adrift of safety with 10 matches remaining.
