Injury Update

Official Site

After last night's game, there are no fresh injury problems for Rangers.

Worries over Marc Nygaard are totally unfounded. The striker came off after an hour due to a lack of match fitness alone and not because of a reoccurrence of his hamstring injury.
Marc Bircham also suffered from a lack of fitness and was feeling tightness in both hamstrings. He is however expected to be fine for the trip to Crewe.
Stefan Moore failed to make the squad due to illness but is hoping to be back for the weekend.
Club physio Prav Mathema was also keen to clear up rumours surrounding Tommy Doherty's injury. He said: "Tommy hasn't broken down in training; he suffered a clinical fracture against Plymouth and was in plaster for four weeks.
"When we had the plaster taken off, we were advised by his consultant that he was to do low impact rehab for two weeks. "We made a decision to attempt low level jogging to gauge at what stage his injury was at. At this point he was slightly sore and therefore we decided to continue with the present rehab regime. We will look to attempt running again next week. "Once he is pain free with his running we can then focus on regaining his match fitness and getting him to join back in training with the squad."There are often set backs in this field and a lot of the time it's a case of rolling with the punches.
"Sometimes players come back earlier than expected, but people seem to forget that.
"With Kevin Gallen it's been the opposite case. There are no conspiracy theories or anything like that, I simply will not risk one of my players coming back earlier than necessary and risk them breaking down."
