Rangers senior man delivers injury update ahead of Dundee clash, fans will be delighted
By Matt Farr
Rangers caretaker manager Graeme Murty has stated that Josh Windass could be set to return to full training on Wednesday.
The 23-year-old midfielder has been out with an ankle injury, but could be in line to make a return to first-team training this week, and fans will be delighted to see their man back in action.
Speaking to the club’s official website, Murty also confirmed that Lee Wallace could be back fit in time to face Dundee on Saturday, after he was withdrawn against Morton amid fears of a muscle injury.
The Ibrox chief admitted that the Rangers skipper had only been substituted as a precaution, and that there was no serious potential setback.
He said: “Josh will hopefully be involved in training on Wednesday if he comes through Tuesday alright. He trained a little bit with the physios and we are seeing what his reaction was like to that but I am quite hopeful.

“Lee Wallace has had a muscular problem and taking him off was preventative, we didn’t want to make it any worse.
“He is hopeful that he is going to be making good strides and I have to say that they’re taking really good care of him and making sure he has a really good chance for the weekend.”
Murty took over first-team responsibilities at Ibrox following Mark Warburton’s dismissal from his post on Friday night, and has inherited a squad riddled with further injury problems.
Midfield duo Niko Kranjcar and Jordan Rossiter are still sidelined with long-term knocks, but Murty was able to provide another positive update on the pair’s recovery.
Rossiter has been out since September with a calf injury, and according to Murty, has been back in the gym doing light work with physios.
Kranjcar, meanwhile, ruptured his cruciate ligament in October, and is making great strides in his bid to return to full fitness.
