Rangers interim manager Graeme Murty has revealed that a newspaper has apologised to the Ibrox club following a story that was printed about Rangers defender Bruno Alves.

Reports at the start of the week suggested that Alves had refused to be a substitute against Hamilton, but Murty has revealed to the official Rangers twitter account that the story wasn’t true.

He said: “Two newspapers printed a story this week about Bruno which was untrue.

“One has apologised this morning and the other has been encouraged to do so,” he continued.

Alves hasn’t played for Rangers since Rangers drew 1-1 with Kilmarnock, in what proved to be Pedro Caixinha’s last game in charge of the ‘Gers.

He is a doubt for Rangers’ upcoming visit to Dundee with a back injury.

The 35-year-old signed for Rangers in May from Cagliari in a two year deal, and was expected to be a key man for Perdo Caixinha.

Rangers are next in action tomorrow night against bottom of the Scottish Premiership Dundee.

Graeme Murty’s side will be looking to bounce back from last week’s shock 2-0 defeat to Hamilton at Ibrox.

The Gers then face what looks to be a critical double-header against second placed Aberdeen in the battle to finish second in the league.
