GRAEME MURTY has provided an injury update ahead of the Florida Cup games against Atletico Mineiro on Thursday and Corinthians on Saturday.
Both Ryan Jack and Ross McCrorie have missed the club’s training sessions at the IMG Academy in Florida and the manager, speaking exclusively to RangersTV, is disappointed they will not be able to take part in the big matches coming up.
He said: “Ryan has had, not a recurrence, but he’s not progressed as far on with his knee injury from the Motherwell game as we had hoped, and Ross has had a recurrence of his foot injury that he sustained when he clattered into the advertising boards.
“Those are two historical ones that have had, not relapses, but we are taking our time with because we want to make sure that we don’t push them too hard and we give them longer-term problems.
“Jamie Barjonas had a sore shin from a harder ground and things like that, but other than that the squad is looking quite good and we recently got the guys back at the training centre working hard to get themselves back as fit as they can – Lee and Kenny and Graham Dorrans are making sure that they progress on their personal rehab to get themselves back in the squad.
“So if we do that then the squad is looking strong and it’s looking ready to go for the second half of the season.”
