Rangers winger ruled out till end of year


Rangers’ forgotten man David Templeton has been ruled out for around a further six weeks, with the injury sustained against St Mirren on 7th of August worse than previously thought.

The 26-year old winger sustained a knee ligament injury at Ibrox during the 3-1 win over Ian Murray’s men, and had initially been ruled out for around two months, but unfortunately the unpredictable nature of ligament or muscle damage injuries has led to an extended stay on the sidelines for the former Hearts man.

Current estimates for his absence from a source close to the player have him out until ‘around Christmas’ which could mean the likelihood is that he has played his last football for this calendar year.

The attacker, who also erased his Twitter account recently, has failed to truly maintain a level of consistency since his move to Ibrox, but with Rangers currently not in the most emphatic form of Warbs’ reign, he could have been a useful alternative option to deploy.

It appears though that this will not be the case.


  1. Wee temps has had a horrendous time with injuries since his move to rangers,I was delighted when we signed him from hearts but through one reason or another the move to ibrox has just never worked out for him,what makes it hard to take is that david templeton is a talented winger,I would like to say here and now 'all the very best of luck temps' your luck is due to turn! Keep your head up wee man as your still young and have so much to offer

  2. Sooner he's back the beta cos oduwas hearts not at gers few hard tackles n the oduwa in the first cple of matches is gone n won't b back he's scared now n his head n heart wants to go back to spurs asap injury free we need players who have a long term future and hearts lie at gers in the mean time I wud draft another right back in n move tavenier up at right forward/winger cos wud benefit our defence and attack.

    • Good shout for tav being moved up, who would you have at RB? I for one don't think Aird is good enough at RB, I think MW should sit in the stand for the first 20-30 mins of Saturday game against St mirren to work out a way past the 10 men behind the ball scenario. Come January I hope MW has a plan to get in new players to help with the big push and bed the players in for next season.

    • Dearie me Robert check the fixture list ya bam or you'll be sitting in a stadium alone, but just in case we play st mirren Saturday 12.30 pm it is live on bbc gibberish

  3. He was my fav gers signing on recent years and my pals gave dogs abuse but I've always stuck by him, the boy has so much talent, it's a shame he is injured again I'm thinking maybe it's not going to happen for us with Templeton. PS. ITS EVERYONE'S CHOICE BUT BOYCOTT SPORTS DIRECT.

  4. Sadly I feel Templeton doesn't represent good value. He's injured more than he is fit and takes a while to find his form when he is fit. But if the gaffer sees him adding value then I'm fine with that. I leave it to the manager to decide, in Warburton we trust 😉
