SHOCKING NEWS : Rangers missing SEVEN fantastic players ahead of hectic festive fixture

John Lundstram and Kemar Roofe sustained injuries during the 2-0 triumph against St Johnstone at Ibrox on Wednesday. Philippe Clement, a few months ago, expressed that the injury scenario at Rangers was the most challenging he had ever encountered. Since then, the situation has worsened, and the frustrated Belgian manager now faces a crucial series of festive fixtures with an absentee list nearing double digits.

The frustration with Diallang Jaiyesimi’s challenge on John Lundstram, leading to a red card for the St Johnstone player, was heightened as Lundstram joined the already extensive injury list. This occurred after the persistently injured Kemar Roofe had left the field in frustration. Additionally, the absence of Ben Davies from the bench in the last two games adds to the mystery, potentially bringing the injured players count to eight.

As Rangers prepare to face Motherwell on Christmas Eve, Clement anticipates having only one fit recognized central midfielder in Kieran Dowell. Dujon Sterling, who has been playing out of position as a makeshift midfielder, is likely to partner Dowell in the upcoming match. Despite closing the gap on Celtic in the Scottish Premiership, Rangers find themselves with a depleted squad for crucial games, including the December 30th trip to Parkhead.

Following the Motherwell match, Rangers have fixtures against Ross County, the Old Firm derby, and Kilmarnock before the winter break. Clement is eagerly looking forward to the break. Record Sport examines the dire injury situation, highlighting key players like John Lundstram, Kemar Roofe, Danilo, Ryan Jack, Tom Lawrence, Nico Raskin, and Jose Cifuentes, all grappling with various injuries. The status of Ben Davies remains uncertain, potentially adding to the team’s injury concerns.
