Rangers: Alex Lowry suffers injury blow at Ibrox

Rangers have been hit with another big injury blow as an update has emerged on Ibrox gem Alex Lowry…

What’s the latest?

Gers head coach Gio van Bronckhorst has revealed that the young midfielder is the latest player to come down with a knock, joining Ianis Hagi and Alfredo Morelos on the sidelines.

All three players are due to watch on from the stands, or at home, as the club take on Braga in their Europa League quarter-final clash.

Rangers quoted the boss as saying: “We don’t have Hagi, Morelos and Lowry, who is also unavailable. We have to create a gameplan that will work for Thursday and that is our focus.”

Will Lowry become a regular next season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Gutted

This update will surely leave the Ibrox faithful gutted as it means that they will not be able to see the academy graduate make his European bow.

FFC recently published an article explaining why he has a bright future in Glasgow and why van Bronckhorst should offer him more opportunities in the first team. The talented youngster has caught the eye at youth and senior level this term and has the potential to be a valuable player off the bench for the Dutch coach.

However, he will not be able to call upon the maestro tonight and it remains to be seen how serious the issue is, as the Gers boss did not specify what the problem is. This means that he could be out for a number of weeks or be back for the next match, with the former being a worrying prospect for supporters and the manager as it could stunt his development between now and the end of the campaign.

Lowry has played four first-team matches for the Glasgow giants this term, scoring one goal and assisting another across three Scottish Cup outings and one appearance in the Premiership. He also scored against Celtic for Rangers B recently, with Record Rangers Podcast noting that he ‘ran the show’ in midfield.

What nationality does Mateusz Zukowski represent?

After that match, reporter Joshua Barrie claimed that “Regular first-team minutes have to come soon for” the talented midfielder and this illustrates the talent that the 18-year-old has.

He has already been on the bench in the Europa League and would surely have been involved in some capacity had he been available for the match tonight, even if he did not get a kick of the ball. This is a blow for the player as it sets him back in his progression into the first-team and it leaves van Bronckhorst with one less option to pick from, having already lost Morelos earlier this week – leaving fans gutted in the process.
