Rangers lost yet another two men during last night’s win over St Johnstone, with Kemar Roofe as mentioned as well as John Lundstram not making it through the match intact.

Let’s have the latest roundup of injuries at Ibrox as we navigate through the intense winter schedule.

Kemar Roofe:

Already covered, he swung for a shot and injured himself in the process.

Tom Lawrence:

He’s basically out for the season – hit by yet another untimely blow, he’s been ruled out for the foreseeable in a possible ankle or calf issue. He won’t be available for quite a while. Another Kemar Roofe, sadly.

Nico Raskin:

Rehab suffered a massive setback and last we heard he was to see a specialist. He’s been rank rotten this season anyway, nowhere near the level of last campaign, and as well as his insulting statements about the club one previous international break, he’s not really been a miss anyway.


Out till the split at the earliest, the Brazilian suffered a nasty knock and needs surgery, if it’s not already been carried out. Rangers need to replace him next month.

Jose Cifuentes:

Unlikely to return before the winter break, the Ecuador’s stuttering Rangers career continues as he struggles with yet another injury. Not really worked out for him at Ibrox yet.

Ryan Jack:

Constant battle to get over the latest niggle, he’s another who probably won’t be seen again this year and like Roofe and Lawrence, it’s just one blight after another with Jacko.

John Lundstram:

Early indications aren’t great here. A nasty tackle, slammed rightly by Philippe Clement, but much the same as Cifu’s own which the manager tried to defend. Both were clear reds, and VAR helped to come to that conclusion. As for Lundstram, he could be out for a while. Midfield is looking desperately short now.

Not ideal is it?
