Queens Park Rangers winger Shaun Wright-Phillips undergoes surgery on his right ankle.

Queens Park Rangers midfielder Shaun Wright-Phillips has undergone an operation in order to recover from an ankle injury.

The 31-year-old hasn't played for the Hoops since March 9, and was left out of the squad altogether during Monday's 3-2 defeat at Fulham.

Wright-Phillips posted a picture to social networking site Twitter on Thursday, showing a heavily bandaged right foot.

The picture was accompanied by a message which read: "Had my ankle surgery - all went well. Thanx 4 your kind wishes truly appreciate it all."

It remains unclear how long Wright-Phillips will be out of action for.
