Rangers have been left sweating over the fitness of midfielder Ross McCrorie after fearing he had suffered a broken ankle while on their warm weather training break, according to a report.
The Daily Record claim on their website that the 19-year-old enforcer has picked up a blow while at the club’s training camp in Florida, and that there were initial fears he had suffered major damage, although the worry is that he has chipped a bone rather than an outright break.
However, it is stated that while not as bad as initially thought, the youngster’s injury is set to keep him out of action for a couple of the club’s upcoming games, in what would be a major blow to the club.
The Scotland under-21 international has been a key figure in the Gers’ midfield this season, and has established himself as a favourite under Graeme Murty, with 18 appearances for the first team since making his senior debut earlier in the campaign.
Rangers’ last game saw them hold fierce rivals Celtic to a 0-0 draw just before the turn of the new year, and they are set to play friendly matches against Atletico Mineiro and Corinthians before returning to domestic action on the 21 January, with their Scottish Cup clash against Fraserburgh.
