QPR losing patience with Caulker

QPR: Steven Caulker

QPR are assessing their options for disciplining Steven Caulker following the defender’s latest misdemeanour.

Caulker, 25, has been arrested and charged with failing to provide a breath sample following an incident in Windsor in the early hours of Sunday morning.

It is the fourth time Caulker has been in trouble with the police and comes less than a month after he was fined for throwing objects at passers-by at Clapham Junction station.

He pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly after that offence, was fined £650 and ordered to pay £85 costs.

Rangers are running out of patience with Caulker, who has not played since October.

The minimum sanction he faces is being fined two weeks’ wages – the maximum fine clubs can impose under terms agreed by the FA with the PFA, who could potentially challenge a stiffer punishment.

Caulker has 16 months remaining on his QPR contract.
