According to The Scottish Sun, the Rangers midfielder’s hamstring knock is not as bad as it was first feared by the medical staff at Ibrox and he is set to return before the end of the campaign.
The report claims that he is keen to be fit for the second-leg of their Europa League semi-final on Thursday night, with the Welshman ‘desperately’ fighting to be available for selection. Although, it remains to be seen – for now – whether or not he will be able to make the Gers’ matchday squad.
The Gers supporters will surely be buzzing with this news as it means that they are likely to see Ramsey back in action for the Light Blues in the coming weeks.
They may have been fearing the worst when he hobbled off holding his hamstring against Celtic in the Scottish Cup but this update has allayed those concerns as they now face the prospect of seeing him make his return against RB Leipzig this week.
Having Ramsey back and available for selection will be a big boost for Gio van Bronckhorst as he has shown glimpses of the quality he can provide on the pitch.
The ex-Arsenal man has averaged an impressive SofaScore rating of 6.98 across five appearances in the Premiership as he has popped up with two goals – including one against the Hoops in an Old Firm clash.
Rangers have huge matches coming up as they battle Leipzig for the right to compete in a major European final before facing Hearts in the final of the Scottish Cup later this month. The Gers have the chance to win two trophies, assuming they do not overturn Celtic’s six-point Premiership lead in the last three league outings, and Ramsey’s return will improve their chances of getting them over the line.
He has shown that he can show up in big moments – as he did against Celtic – and that is why having him back will be a big boost if he can make the squad against Leipzig.
The mercurial midfielder can be a difference-maker with his quality in the final third and, hopefully, he will be able to show that once again at Ibrox against the Bundesliga outfit, which is why this news is a key relief for the head coach.
