Rangers defender Fabio Cardoso has hit the gym ahead of the Gers’ return to pre-season training on June 15th – and fans want to see Cardoso continue to work hard and force his way back into the first-team.
The Portuguese ace fell out of favour after an injury picked up in October’s Scottish League Cup semi-final defeat by Motherwell at Hampden.
The defender posted the image of him working out with the caption “the only way is work hard” on his personal Twitter account – and fans hope the 24-year-old is given a second chance to impress at Ibrox.

@adamrobertsons hasn’t been involved for months, and his attitude is first class. I don’t think he’s overly that bad either

Cardoso was a mainstay in the side in the first part of the season before injury kept him on the sidelines for a number of weeks.
By the time Cardoso returned, manager Pedro Caixinha had been sacked and Graeme Murty had taken the reins.
Murty seemed less than convinced by Cardoso’s ability and opted to go with David Bates or Ross McCrorie more often than the Portuguese defender.
Cardoso joined the Gers last summer from Vitoria Setubal and made 18 appearances for the Gers in his debut season in Scotland and has two years remaining on his Ibrox contract.
