Glasgow Rangers starlet Alex Lowry has undergone scans on his knee after a horrendous tackle during a Rangers B game on Tuesday night.
The Lowdown: Gers win in style
The B team cruised to an emphatic victory against Dumbarton in the SPFL Trust Trophy, winning 7-0 in the end.
This included a hat-trick from Lowry, who the opposition players struggled to contain throughout the match.
The Latest: Challenge on Lowry
Footage of a shocking challenge on Lowry from a Dumbarton player during the encounter circulated on social media, which left McFarlane fuming:
The Verdict: Fingers crossed
The challenge occurred late on in the game, with the score already at 7-0, but was so bad that it forced Lowry to be stretchered off of the pitch.
It was simply unnecessary, and could end up sidelining Lowry for a chunk of the season – he has had a scan on his knee but there are no further details as of yet.
It would be a big shame for the 19-year-old, who already has five goals and one assist at youth level this term, and has made seven appearances for the senior team, netting twice and making two assists (Transfermarkt).
Nonetheless, Lowry and the Gers will be hoping that the injury is not as serious as first feared, and that the Scotsman can have a swift recovery after what was truly an unforgivable challenge on him.
