Murty details injury update on Rangers senior duo, assesses chances of featuring v Ross County
Rangers look set for an injury boost with senior duo Bruno Alves and Danny Wilson looking like they will be available for selection against Ross County on Saturday.
Alves missed Sunday’s 2-1 win over Aberdeen with a knee injury while Wilson had to be substituted at half-time of the same game after complaining of blurred vision following a head knock.
Portugal international Alves has barely featured under Pedro Caixinha as a combination of injury and suspension have limited his game time since Caixinha’s sacking on October 26th.
Interim manager Graeme Murty revealed both were back in training – although confirmed he was waiting for a final update from the club’s medical staff on the pair.
“Bruno Alves trained on Wednesday and again today,” Murty said, as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account.
“Danny Wilson has done some heading today.

If Alves and Wilson are available it could give Murty a selection headache with four central defender fit to face Ross County on Saturday.
David Bates picked up man of the match against Aberdeen last weekend while Fabio Cardoso – who replaced Danny Wilson at Pittodrie – impressed in his first appearance since the League Cup semi-final defeat to Motherwell in October.
The Gers are currently second in the Scottish Premiership and will be hoping to keep up the momentum gained from back-to-back wins over Aberdeen last week.
