Rangers' winger ruled out for up to two months


Rangers’ winger David Templeton has been ruled out for at least four weeks (and up to eight) with ligament damage.

The injury, sustained v St Mirren on the 7th of this month, rules the 26 year old forward out for the crucial upcoming clashes against Queen of the South and Hibernian, and makes him a major doubt for next month’s matches v Morton and high-flying Dumbarton, depending on recovery timescale.

Templeton has struggled to impose himself at Ibrox since arriving in 2012 from Tynecastle, and it had been hoped the arrival of Mark Warburton would rejuvenate the attacker, but this setback makes that even harder and forces the notion that by the time he is fit, he may find it especially difficult to even earn himself a place on the bench such is the wonderful start Rangers have made under the new manager.

It is probably safe to say Rangers have the depth to cover his absence, and if Nathan Oduwa’s introduction to life at Ibrox is anything to go by, Warburton has more than a few options for that area of the pitch.

  4. To be honest, I didn't realise he was injured, I thought he had been dropped.
    I suspect he will not be able to force his way back in and will leave at the end of the season, his promise unfulfilled.

  8. Temps has the promise of greatness but not the will to impose it, sorry to say he will likely be another who comes and goes, perhaps a little less expectation on him at another team will help him
