Rangers boss Mark Warburton says that players are now returning from injury to further boost his options.

Warburton's men went down 5-1 to fierce rivals Celtic last weekend and will look to respond this coming weekend when Ross County are the visitors to Ibrox for a Scottish Premiership game.

Then on Tuesday night Rangers are in Scottish League Cup action against Queen of the South – and two games in quick succession means that the Englishman will have to make full use of his squad.

But he does have options and explained to Rangers TV: "Philippe [Senderos] will obviously be suspended, Rob [Kiernan] we will look at as he obviously came off last week with a damaged ankle, so we will need to see how that responds and fingers crossed that will be well.

"Danny Wilson has been out running this week and has done some light ball work, so that is positive", Warburton continued.


"We welcomed back Matt Crooks to full training this week which was nice to see, Joe Dodoo will be back in the full group this week, and again, great work by the team to get him back, so we are starting to get the bodies back, it’s the nature of the league that we have had a few injuries and it’s nice to have the choices", he added.

Rangers know that despite the season still being young, victory over Queen of the South would put them into the Scottish League Cup semi-final, meaning they would be within touching distance of the final.

The first priority for Warburton though will be to steer his side to a comprehensive victory over Ross County at Ibrox as the Gers look to shrug off their Old Firm disappointment and stay as close to Celtic at the top of the Premiership table as possible.
