RANGERS boss Mark Warburton picked Cammy Bell for his bench against Livingston for the first time this season and said after the match he’s delighted to have him back fit.

Cammy Bell last pulled on the Rangers jersey at the end of last season in the second leg of the playoff final against Motherwell and has since been out through injury.

The Scottish keeper has recently re-joined first team training and is now working hard to get himself back into the team – something that is delighting his manager.

Speaking after the game yesterday, Warburton said: “Cammy has worked hard after his eight and a half months out. It’s been a frustrating time for him and the medical team have worked tirelessly.

“He’s came back in to training and working in the gym very hard. He knows he has a lot of work ahead of him but it’s great to see him back.”

Nicky Clark was a second half substitute for the Light Blues yesterday and he had the ball in the back of the net for the Gers with only a few minutes left to play, but the referee had already pointed to the spot for a penalty.

Andy Halliday stepped up to take the spot kick only to be thwarted by McCallum in goal for Livi and the manager understood the position that the referee took on the matter.

He said: “It’s one of those things, I saw that the referee gave the penalty then the ball hits the back of the net.”

The manager also told RangersTV following the match that the management team at the club are continuing to work on transfers with the window open until the end of the month.

He said: “We are working hard and we have some targets in mind with which we are getting closer and hopefully this week will see us complete a couple of things.”
