Manager: Rangers 23-year-old to see specialist after scan on weekend injury

By Harvey Byrne

Scunthorpe manager Graham Alexander has told that on-loan Rangers midfielder Matt Crooks is set to meet a specialist after an injury he picked up against Bolton on Saturday.

The 23-year-old midfielder has impressed at the League One side since joining the club from the Ibrox giants in January until the end of the season.

He has so far featured in 12 matches for the north Lincolnshire-based side, but he may have to miss out the rest of the season after being forced off with an injury at half-time in the 1-0 win over Bolton.

Alexander has told in pre-match press conference, as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account that the extent of the injury is not yet known following the scan and that he remains hopeful that a specialist will deliver good news, but Crooks has been ruled out of the two Easter weekend fixtures.

Crooks joined Rangers in the summer from League Two outfit Accrington Stanley in a pre-contract deal alongside Josh Windass.

However, he struggled to establish himself at the Gers under former boss Mark Warburton and featured just twice in the Premiership before his winter move to Scunthorpe.

Many will now be hoping the injury is not too serious as there is still potential for him to make a name for himself with Rangers.
