There is nothing worse for a footballer than starting a new season and then suffering a serious injury.

In August, Rangers forward Jamie Murphy suffered knee ligament damage, putting him on the sidelines for the rest of the season.

The injury occurred during a 3-1 League Cup win over Kilmarnock on August 19.

Manager Steven Gerrard was able to fill his squad with new players, but the 5ft 10in Murphy has been forced to watch from the sidelines.

A specific date for the attacker’s return has not been set, but the 29-year-old has been making progress.

Via Twitter on Tuesday, Murphy posted a video of himself doing some light work in the gym.

The former Sheffield United player moved to Ibrox from Brighton in January, and in total has made 27 appearances, scoring six goals and creating 13 assists.

Plenty of fans responded, wishing for the Scotland international’s speedy recovery.

Some made reference to Rangers’ ambitions to win their 55th league title.
