Four-man boost for Stevie Ger


Steven Gerrard has been handed a potentially incredible pre-Dundee and Villarreal boost with the news at least four men could be available again following a tragic time on the injury table.

Training photos confirm long-term absentees Jordan Rossiter and Graham Dorrans are getting excruciatingly near fitness and have returned with the lads seemingly full time, while Lassana Coulibaly was clearly getting there too following his welcome presence at the last session.

Meanwhile the big news coming out the Hummel Training Centre is new signing Eros Grezda’s presence with the group, the Albanian attacker having been sent home by Christian Panucci as a precaution.

It appears the knock he picked up earlier this year on international duty has now cleared and the creative playmaker is nearly ready for selection.

It makes for a brilliant state of affairs for Steven Gerrard, that he is now close to finally having his full squad available for the first time as manager, deepening his options and giving him strength in quality numbers in nearly every department.

The one caveat is the shallow area of attack – only three strikers are on Rangers’ books, namely Alfredo Morelos, Kyle Lafferty and Umar Sadiq – Morelos remains a work in progress, Lafferty may be injured depending on the seriousness of his knee knock v Bosnia, and Sadiq doesn’t appear to be an option yet.

But Stevie will be certainly be happy to have a new bunch of players ready and available to him at last.

  1. Looking forward to seeing the Albanian. Let’s hope he can take a bit of the rough stuff that the spfl defenders dish out. It’s one thing being quick and direct but another when there’s a physical threat when doing so.

  5. Come on Jordan. Prove to us all, you're not injury-prone and turn on the skills, like I saw you last time you played, before you got injured. I know he can play, I hope he does last the full 90. Protect those ankles and shins well, son. Best of luck, at Dens Rd.

  6. We should Play Dorrans in his natural Position Sitting AM (No.10) and we will see the Real GD.

    We should let Rossiter Leave

    And Coulibaly has been Badly Missed!
