PEDRO Caixinha has confirmed Lee Wallace will miss both tomorrow’s League Cup quarter-final and this weekend’s Old Firm with a groin injury.

The Rangers captain will travel to England today to find out the extent of his injury and the length of time he could miss.

Wallace went down injured after just 10 minutes of the Light Blues 2-2 draw with Partick Thistle on Friday night and had to be replaced by debutant Declan John.

Speaking to RangersTV Caixinha said: “Lee Wallace is out, he is travelling to Manchester today to have an assessment on his groin so let’s see how it goes.

“Depending on the outcome of that we will see what we need to do. He will miss the weekend, Lee is out we just need to know for how long he needs to be out.”

It had been feared Wallace’s replacement John could also miss tomorrow’s cup clash with Thistle.

The Cardiff City loanee complained of an ankle niggle after Friday’s game but returned to training with the rest of the squad on Sunday with no problems.

Caixinha continued:

“Declan John will definitely be with us tomorrow as will Ryan Jack who will start.

“Graham Dorrans is back at training today, yesterday he felt a bit sick and the doctor is already on him.

“He will not train with the team this morning but we think he will be available for Tuesday.”

Niko Kranjcar and Jordan Rossiter were both absent from Firhill and the Gers boss confirmed they are both having problems with knee injuries.

He explained:

“Niko started back training with us on Sunday. He is still going to be assessed by his surgeon so we are going to see how we are going to deal with his situation. It is the same knee as he injured last season.

“Jordan Rossiter still has some pain on the knee so he still can’t train with the team and is not in our options.”
