48-Hour Wait For Duo

Written by Andrew Dickson




RANGERS hope to find out the extent of damage done to Nicky Law and Ian Black in today’s win at Brechin inside the next 48 hours.


Midfielder Law went off in the first half of the 2-1 success in Angus after hurting his back and he was replaced by Sebastien Faure.


Black then had to be carried off on a stretcher after he went to shoot and connected with the sole of an opponent’s boot instead in the second period.


The ex-Hearts star left Glebe Park on crutches but Gers are hopeful his foot will just be badly bruised rather than anything more serious.


It remains to be seen if he’ll be fit enough for next weekend’s trip to face Arbroath at Gayfield but that will become clearer as the week goes on.


At this stage, it appears Ally McCoist is more optimistic of having Law available for the meeting with the Red Lichties.


After the final whistle sounded on a success which takes Gers 32 points clear of Dunfermline in League One, he hinted the Englishman’s withdrawal was a precaution more than anything.


McCoist – already without key men Andy Little and David Templeton in the coming weeks - said: “At this moment in time they are both toiling.


“We won’t really know how they are for another 24 to 48 hours. Blackie’s got a sore one. He went to strike the ball, the lad went to block him and I think everyone in the crowd heard it.


“It looked and sounded like a sore one so he’ll ice it just now and we’ll reassess that one tomorrow morning.


“Nicky is very much the same. He just felt he twisted his back a bit on a run through in the first half and we weren’t taking any chances so we took him off.”

Who's currently injured? If these two were to miss the the Ramsdens final and Scottish semi then we'd be lucky to see another trophy added to the league.


Totally agree sb.

They are our central midfield and the dynamo of the team at present.

I think we could wave goodbye to both Cups without them.

And who do suppose we should play instead of these players in the Ramsdens final and the SC semi? A bunch of youngsters?


Why not? We will most likely be up against, youngsters. Make use of our top class youth set up and fantastic batch of kids coming through, that is what it is there for. We have plenty options. There is not a kid in our squad who would offer less than Ian Black and i doubt we have a kid weak enough to go missing like Law does every week. Let's not show fear here, let's not make this an excuse for failure, let's not show weakness already with the games weeks away. Be brave, be bold and be strong.






MacLeod is he's back.


Shiels and Jig at a push too.


Plenty options, nothing to fear.
