Rangers: Gio van Bronckhorst drops injury update

Ibrox giants Rangers have been handed a fresh injury lift ahead of their Scottish Cup clash on Sunday…

What’s the latest?

Gio van Bronckhorst has confirmed that he does not have any new blows to deal with and will have a full squad to select from outside of the long-term injuries.

Ianis Hagi, Alfredo Morelos and Filip Helander have all been ruled out for the rest of the season but the Gers have no minor concerns to worry about ahead of this Old Firm clash.

The head coach said: “No fresh injury doubts for tomorrow, we will prepare with our last training today and looking forward to the match.”

Will Rangers beat Celtic?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Supporters will be relieved

Rangers supporters will surely be left feeling relieved by this news as it means that they do have to worry about any other players missing this match against Celtic.

Morelos, Hagi and Helander were all already out for the 3-1 win over Braga on Thursday night and this means that there will be no, enforced, changes to the matchday squad from that match. The Gers secured their place in the semi-finals of the Europa League with a stunning win against the Portuguese side, with goals from James Tavernier (two) and Kemar Roofe sealing their passage through to the last four.

This fantastic win at Ibrox will breed confidence as it was a special night under the lights in Glasgow and a huge win in the context of the season. They are currently six points behind Celtic in the Premiership and this means that the cup competitions are now their best chance of winning silverware, which is why their progression in Europe has an added importance.

What nationality does Mateusz Zukowski represent?

It is also why this Scottish Cup clash with the Hoops is also a big occasion for the Gers. They have a chance to oust their rivals out of the way on their route to lifting the trophy and fans will be keen to see them exact revenge after losing their last two Premiership matches against them.

Therefore, the supporters will be relieved that none of the players who impressed on Thursday night have picked up injuries ahead of this clash. They will be wanting to see a similar performance, and result, to the one they enjoyed against Braga and having the same squad available will be a big boost for van Bronckhorst given their displays in the week.

Now it is down to the players to showcase their quality at Hampden…
