The 22-year-old key player, who joined the Gers on loan from Cardiff in the summer but made the move permanent in January, has been a regular in the first-team since he moved to Ibrox, making 25 appearances so far this season.
John is set to miss a host of important games for the Light Blues, beginning with Tuesday’s match with St Johnstone and also the upcoming Old Firm derby at Ibrox in March.
However, as the tweet states it isn’t all bad news for the Gers as they have a ready-made replacement in club captain Lee Wallace.
Wallace, who hasn’t played since September because of a groin injury which required an operation, is fully fit and is set to make his return to the first-team against St Johnstone.
It will be intriguing to see how the 30-year-old fares on his return after so long out injured.
In other Rangers news, the Gers are reportedly interested in signing Sean Goss on a permanent deal.
