Many Glasgow Rangers fans have been left fuming as some early team news emerged ahead of their game away at Motherwell at Sunday lunchtime.
Speaking in his pre-game press conference ahead of the match in the Scottish Premiership, Steven Gerrard has now revealed that his team will be without Borna Barisic, Ryan Kent and Ryan Jack for the trip.
Jack seems to be suffering setback after setback, and so many members of the Ibrox faithful are desperate to see him back on the pitch again.
Should Rangers keep Barisic?
Kent has still not recovered from an ongoing hamstring injury, and the Light Blues have only managed to win three of their last six games in the SPFL without him (Transfermarkt).
Barisic has been rated as the Bears’ joint-second best player in the division so far this season with a 7.16 average rating from WhoScored, while he also ranks highly among his teammates in terms of average tackles (1.5), clearances (three), key passes (2.3) and crosses (3.2) per match.
Rangers fans on team news
These Gers fumed as the team news was shared on Twitter, with one RFC supporter claiming that it is a ‘blow’:
“Hello darkness my old friend”
“Too soon… He was supposed to be back by Aberdeen.. How much longer 7-10 days?”
“He told us Kent would be ready for Aberdeen that was 3 weeks ago”
“You knew that was coming our record at getting players back from injury is nothing short of abysmal”
