Report: Shattering Rangers injury blow with key player in danger of missing season run-in
Rangers midfielder Ross McCrorie has had a shattering setback to his rehabilitation, according to a report.
According to Rangers blog Four Lads had a Dream, a solid source of Rangers news, the 19-year-old was set to be cleared by club doctors.
However, that hasn’t happened and it is claimed his injury hasn’t improved, which means he’ll miss at least the next three-four weeks before he can contemplate a return to action.
However, the report goes on to say that the injury is now at “critical point” and that if he doesn’t react to treatment then he might have to have surgery.
That could mean he misses the rest of the season, which would be a huge blow to him and to the club.
This follows on comments made by Graeme Murty at the end of January, when he confirmed that McCrorie was due to see a specialist.
He picked up the latest injury in the training camp at Floriday, and Murty said afterwards: “Unfortunately he has had an enforced rest at the moment but we are always conscious he is only young and we don’t want to put too much on him too soon.
We have to make sure he’s okay, he knows the regard we hold him in.”
The player recently signed a new four-and-a-half year contract after developing into a key Rangers midfielder under Murty.
