RANGERS could be without Cammy Bell until Christmas after it he dislocated his right shoulder in training yesterday.


The goalkeeper has been out injured since he hurt the same joint during the 2-0 SPFL Championship win over Falkirk at Westfield on August 15.


He had been making good progress in his rehabilitation and was starting to think of making a return to first-team action once again.


But his mishap yesterday at Murray Park means he requires surgery and he is expected to be out for around three months as a result.


Losing Bell, who kept 25 clean sheets in total last season, is clearly a big setback for manager Ally McCoist.


He does have experience to call upon in the keeper’s absence, however, and Steve Simonsen should continue between the posts for the foreseeable future.


The former England under-21 cap has featured in each of the last six games and has kept clean sheets recently against Raith Rovers and Inverness Caledonian Thistle.


Lee Robinson will keep providing back-up to Simonsen after signing a one-year deal with the club last month.

Sounds like pushing him too hard to get back quicker and made it worse, or perhaps a mis-diagnosis in the first place. I am not really buying the freak accident line being pushed here by the club.


Difficult to know for sure but one thing we do know is that the budget has been reduced for supporting infrastructure regards the football operation and that certainly won't have helped.


It has to be said that over the years, our record regards similar type incidents around the treatment room and medical section has been poor. That goes for the pre-sp.iv era aswell.

McCoist added: “We always knew there was a possibility of Cammy’s shoulder coming out again and it was a gamble but we felt it was one worth taking.


“We took advice from the medical people and tried to strengthen it but sadly it came out again and he’ll be out for months rather than weeks.”


farcical , no one has the first clue what they are doing at Ibrox.
