Many Glasgow Rangers fans have been left buzzing over some team news involving Filip Helander.
Speaking in his pre-game press conference ahead of their match at home to St. Mirren in the Scottish Premiership on Sunday afternoon, Giovanni van Bronckhorst has revealed that the Sweden international has been ‘back individually for a couple of weeks’, and that he is hopeful that he can join up with his teammates for training sessions after the winter break.
Should Rangers start Helander?
He has not played for the Ibrox faithful since September after having knee surgery, and was a key part of the team earlier in the season, ranking highly among his teammates in terms of average tackles (1.7), clearances (four) and blocks (0.3) per match in the SPFL this campaign. (WhoScored).
Of course, Helander also scored the winning goal against Celtic at home earlier this term, and supporters of the Teddy Bears simply cannot wait to have him back in the side.
