This follows on from a tweet from Rangers blog Four Lads Had a Dream yesterday where it was reported that the defender had suffered a groin injury and would be out for a few weeks.
Now it looks like the injury is not as bad as first feared, although it does look like he will only make the bench.
Declan John faces 4 weeks out with a groin strain, Blow for the team.

Rangers have the chance to narrow the gap to just six points at the top of the Premiership tonight, with Celtic not in action until tomorrow.
They’ll be desperate to take the maximum points and hope Celtic slip-up ahead of the Old Firm clash at Ibrox on March 11.
