The Athletic journalist Jordan Campbell has shared some promising Glasgow Rangers injury news regarding Tom Lawrence.
The Lowdown: Out since August
The Wales international has been out with injury since August and has duly missed the Gers’ last five games in all competitions.
The Latest: Back after international break
Taking to Twitter, Campbell has shared that Lawrence ‘should be ready to return’ after the international break, although Rangers’ next fixture against Hearts on 1 October may be too soon for him.
The reporter tweeted: “Van Bronckhorst says that Tom Lawrence should be ready to return from injury after the break, although Hearts may be touch and go.”
The Verdict: Big boost
Of course, it will be a big boost for Van Bronckhorst and Rangers to have Lawrence back after the international break.
The 28-year-old has started his Gers career well, with three goals and two assists already to his name across all competitions this season (Transfermarkt).
Should Rangers start Lawrence?
The Wales international currently ranks as their second-best performer in the Premiership overall and is high among his team-mates in terms of average tackles, shots, key passes and crosses per game (WhoScored).
Given their recent results, it is clear that the Light Blues are missing him in the middle of the park, and they will now be hoping that he can work on getting back to full fitness during the international break and be ready for their next set of fixtures.
