Steven Gerrard has revealed the injury worry that he has for Scott Arfield after the Rangers ace was forced off versus Hibernian.
As quoted by The Glasgow Times, the Liverpool and England legend said:
“I’m worried about it because Scott doesn’t come off the pitch in normal circumstances. He doesn’t normally ask for a physio to come on, he’s one who will just normally get up and go.
“He’s a brave kid so I’m concerned about it. We’ll assess it.
“He’s got ice on the ankle area but until it actually gets scanned and assessed properly I’ve got nothing for you unfortunately.”
Arfield injury a worry
The injury to Arfield that forced him to come off will surely be a worry to the Ibrox faithful, especially given that the crucial Old Firm game against their bitter rivals in Celtic is just a few days away from now.
Should Arfield start for Rangers?
Firstly though, the Gers will have to travel to St. Mirren on Wednesday and try to get all three points, which would then set them up very nicely for the clash against Neil Lennon’s team.
Still, there is no doubting the importance of Arfield to the side, given that he has already played in no fewer than 31 games in all competitions so far for RFC in the 2020/21 term, scoring seven goals and making a further five assists (Transfermarkt).
A workhorse in the heart of the midfield, the 32 year-old allows Gerrard’s side to tick on the pitch, and his eye for both a goal and an assist may be crucial in getting six points from their next two matches.
Fans will surely be sweating on his fitness now, especially ahead of the big derby later in the week.
