Rangers star delivers positive news in boost for first team after concerning blow

Rangers defender Ross McCrorie has revealed he is hoping to be back to full fitness over the coming weeks after his injury blow suffered over the winter break.
The 21-year-old was ruled out of action after picking up a foot injury while playing for the senior side before worsening it while on the club’s warm weather training camp in Florida, and has missed out on his side’s return to the pitch, having appeared in every one of the club’s league games prior to the two week layoff.
However he has stated that although it was a serious concern, with the defensive powerhouse still unable to run as a result of the blow, he is on the road to recovery and will hopefully be back sooner rather than later, although insists he will be patient to ensure there is not a relapse of the injury.
He told Sky Sports: “I’m not going to lie, I’m incredibly frustrated right now.
“I’ve just got to take my time, though, as I don’t want to have any longer-term injuries.
“I’m in rehab just now so it’s all about just resting it and seeing how it will heal from there. Hopefully it’s not too long, maybe a few weeks.
“It’s just really seeing how it reacts from resting it. Hopefully that will be it more or less healed.”
McCrorie, who has been utilised as both a centre back and a defensive midfielder, has made a total of 18 appearances for the Light Blues since making his debut for the club earlier this season, with 16 of those outings coming in the Premiership.
Rangers’ next game sees them go up against Fraserburgh on Wednesday in their rescheduled Scottish Cup clash, having beaten Ross County 2-1 in their last outing.
