Pedro Caixinha delivers Rangers injury update before clash v Motherwell
By Danny Wright
Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha has confirmed that he has a fully fit squad ahead of the Scottish League Cup clash with Motherwell on Sunday.
The Light Blues will be looking to book their spot in the League Cup final with a win at Hampden Park this weekend, to potentially set up an Old Firm clash with Celtic should they get past Hibernian on Saturday.
Lee Wallace and Jordan Rossiter have both been absent with injuries lately, but Caixinha has announced that there are no players currently suffering issues in his squad.
“No injuries at the moment ahead of the match,” said the Ibrox boss in his pre-match press conference on Friday, as quoted by Rangers’ official Twitter account.

Wallace, 30, has been sidelined for other a month with a groin injury while Rossiter, 20, has not even made it on to the bench since August due to his ongoing fitness issues.

Neither are expected to start against Motherwell this week though, with Declan John likely to retain his place at left-back due to the good form he is currently in while Graham Dorrans, Ryan Jack and Carlos Pena are perhaps going to be Caixinha’s choice of central midfielders to start at Hampden over Rossiter.
In what is a very high-stakes game for the Gers, it’s unlikely that Caixinha will want to take any risks with the promise of his first piece of silverware in Scotland just two wins away.
