Pic: Poor Charlie Austin was the victim of some very lazy captioning in The Sun today

He’s only the top-scoring English player in the Premier League at the moment.

Despite having scored eight league goals so far this season – the fourth-highest behind Sergio Aguero, Diego Costa and Alexis Sanchez – QPR striker Charlie Austin wasn’t deemed worthy of recognition in the red-top’s report on the alleged shenanigans at the club’s Christmas do today.

Austin, who you can hardly miss alongside Rio Ferdinand in the sizeable image in the paper, was named as an ‘unnamed man’ in an accompanying caption alongside the names of Ferdinand and Chilean international Eduardo Vargas, who is far less prominent in the background.

Chin up Charlie, it’s not the first time this has happened to a man used to scoring goals in the Premier League, isn’t that right Robbie?
