Worried Rangers to assess Remy groin injury

QPR are to assess the extent of a groin injury that kept recent signing Loic Remy out of their 0-0 draw against Norwich.

The French striker was hurt during the closing stages of training on Friday and was ruled out of the match at Loftus Road.

Manager Harry Redknapp subsequently described the injury as a groin tear, but Rangers have yet to establish whether it is a tear, which would sideline Remy for several weeks, or merely a strain.

Redknapp said: “He tore his groin. He struck a ball in the last minute of training. We’ll see how he is tomorrow morning and then take it from there.”

Remy was badly missed by Rangers, who defended well with debutant Chris Samba at the back but were unable to find the net.

Their best chance came when they were awarded a second-half penalty, but Adel Taarabt’s spot-kick was well saved by Canaries keeper Mark Bunn.

“We couldn’t have tried any harder. We gave everything we had, but just needed a break,” said Redknapp.

“We got the penalty and if we can score that we go on and win the game. We looked strong defensively, but unfortunately we couldn’t convert the penalty.”

Defender Nedum Onuoha missed the game with a back problem.
