The John Eustace saga continues with the near-two month stint at Murray Park still showing no sign of ending.
With sources claiming Eustace’s struggles for fitness mean he will be offered a player/coach role at Ibrox, the entire soap opera remains a bizarre on-going sub-plot which thankfully is some distance away from overshadowing anything, but remains a curious little oddity.
On the topic, publicly at least, Warburton remains positive about the situation but admits, again, that fitness is a serious concern.
“He’s had a small injection to help with the bone bruising so John will be with us very shortly in terms of training. It’s a case of us getting the pacing of rehabilitation right.”
He further added that it is very much a case of simply signing him once he is fit but did not elaborate on exactly what kind of role he would undertake, be it player, coach, player/coach or what.
The question is, with two months on the clock, is that signature coming any time soon?
Thankfully as a free agent Eustace is not bound by the transfer window so Rangers do have time, and he is not urgently needed such is the side’s success on the pitch right now.
