Glasgow Rangers have now been gifted a double injury boost ahead of a big week for the football club.
The Lowdown: Huge week
This is a huge week for the Teddy Bears, not because of their game away at Hearts in the Scottish Premiership at Saturday lunchtime, but because of the small matter of a UEFA Europa League final against Frankfurt on Wednesday night.
Celtic have already won the SPFL title, so it would be smart for Giovanni van Bronckhorst to rest some of his key players against Hearts, thus keeping them fresh for Frankfurt in midweek.
The Latest: Team news
Speaking to the media in a post-match interview after they beat Ross County 4-1 at home on Wednesday night, van Bronckhorst revealed (via The Daily Record) that Ryan Jack ‘will be ready’ to play Frankfurt, while Scott Wright ‘is okay’ after coming off with a knock.
Can Rangers win the Europa League?
However, it will be a ‘close call’ whether Kemar Roofe will be able to return from injury.
The Verdict: Double boost
Despite the news on Roofe, it will be a double boost to have both Jack and Wright available, especially for the final on Wednesday.
Wright has five goals and two assists over both competitions so far this season, while Jack keeps things ticking in the middle of the park, as highlighted by his passing accuracy in both competitions (WhoScored).
Nonetheless, the Light Blues will need all of the help that they can get if they are to achieve the unthinkable and lift up the Europa League trophy.
