Rangers: Ridvan Yilmaz a ‘fresh doubt’ vs Livingston

Rangers: Ridvan Yilmaz a ‘fresh doubt’ vs Livingston -Rangers News

Glasgow Rangers have been dealt an injury concern over Ridvan Yilmaz ahead of their game at Ibrox in the Scottish Premiership this afternoon.

The Lowdown: Injury pile-up

Giovanni van Bronckhorst is seeing a heavy injury pile-up in his squad at the moment, with as many as seven first-team players out for the longer term.

The break for the World Cup cannot come soon enough for the Rangers boss, and he will hope that some of the injured players will be able to regain their fitness in training and ideally come back stronger after the break.

The Latest: Yilmaz concern

Speaking to the media in his pre-game press conference on Friday ahead of their match at home to Livingston, Van Bronckhorst has confirmed that Yilmaz has picked up a ‘knock’ on his knee and is a ‘fresh doubt’ for today’s clash.

The Dutchman said: “Ridvan had a knock on his knee, and we will assess him for tomorrow, our only fresh doubt. A short-term one if misses out.”

The Verdict: Not ideal

With all of the injuries that Rangers have at the moment, adding another player to the list is certainly not ideal.

Even though Yilmaz has barely featured so far this season, he is a £5m summer signing, so Van Bronckhorst is surely going to give him more game-time as the campaign progresses.

Nonetheless, Borna Barisic has been on the end of much criticism this autumn, so the 21-year-old left-back would relish getting more chances to impress if the Croatian continues to falter.

For now, though, it looks as if he may have to sit out this afternoon’s game.
