Rangers forward provides update on injury, shares when he hopes to return

By Harvey Byrne

Rangers forward Joe Dodoo has shared that his injury is “not too bad” and that he hopes to make a return to training on Thursday.

The 21-year-old attacker missed his side’s 4-0 friendly defeat in German against RB Leipzig on Sunday.

Many were wondering of his whereabouts and the striker has shared that he had to pull out through injury.

But, the setback is not considered too serious and he has told of how he hopes to be back before the Scottish Cup fourth round tie with Motherwell on Saturday.

“The injury is not too bad at the moment,”started Dodoo speaking to the official Rangers podcast. “It was just a muscle injury at the last minute and I had to pull out of the squad.

“Hopefully it’s not too long and hopefully I’ll be back in training on Thursday and we’ll see what happens.”

Dodoo made the switch to Ibrox in the summer from Premier League champions Leicester for a £250,000 development fee.

He has struggled for a consistent run in the first team since joining, but he has featured 16 times in all competitions for Mark Warburton’s side, bringing a return of four goals.

He may have been expecting a run out in the team on Saturday, having played in each of the Gers’ League Cup matches this campaign.

However, Dodoo now faces a race against the clock to be ready in time for the match, which marks Rangers’ first fixture since the New Years eve defeat against fierce rivals Celtic.

In other Rangers, Oliver Burke believes this Gers player can be a Premier League star.
