'Start training again' - Murty gives positive updates on long-term Rangers injury absentees
Rangers manager Graeme Murty has revealed that two of the club’s long-term injury victims are on their way back from injury.
Both club captain Lee Wallace and summer signing Graham Dorrans have been out since last year, but Murty has disclosed that Wallace is almost on his way back to training and Dorrans is “improving each day”.
“Lee Wallace is progressing and potentially could start training again tomorrow” Murty said, as quoted on Rangers’ official Twitter account.
“Dorrans is continuing to improve each day and is on the expected timetable to return.”
GM: Lee Wallace is progressing and potentially could start training again tomorrow. Dorrans is continuing to improve each day and is on the expected timetable to return.

Dorrans, a summer signing from Norwich City, hasn’t played since October after suffering an ankle injury which required him to have an operation. The injury was a huge blow to then manager Pedro Caixinha, as he had made a fine start to the season, scoring five goals.
Meanwhile Wallace hasn’t played since September after having a groin operation.
The return of the experienced duo could come at a good time for the Gers, as they continue their battle with Aberdeen for second place in the Scottish Premiership and attempt a run at the Scottish Cup.
Following on from their midweek win over Partick Thistle, the Gers are next in action against Ayr United in the Scottish Cup on Sunday.
The Light Blues reached the semi-final of the competition last season, and will be looking to go one better this season and reach their second Scottish Cup Final in three years.
