Ramsey set for Rangers debut against Hearts

Rangers manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst has hinted that new man Aaron Ramsey could make his debut against Hearts as he looks for a reaction after their Old Firm defeat.

The midfielder joined on loan from Juventus on deadline day but was forced to watch Wednesday night’s Old Firm defeat to Celtic from the stands.

The 31-year-old is short of match fitness, having made just five appearances for Juve since the start of the campaign, but took part in full training with the rest of the Rangers squad on Friday.

“He’s looking good. It’s been a while since he had a team session, he had been training a lot by himself,” the Dutchman enthused.

“He’s doing good, he trained today and tomorrow will train again so hopefully he can feature in the game on Sunday.”

The striker was not even named as a substitute for either of his country’s World Cup qualifiers against Peru and Argentina.

“I’m happy just to have him in the squad again,” added van Brockhorst.

“He’s a striker, a lot of movement and balls up front go to Alfredo so I’m really happy that he’s back because he gives us a lot of quality up front.”

Rangers now find themselves behind Celtic in the title race for the first time this season after their disappointing display in the Old Firm clash, however, Van Bronckhorst insists there is no need cause for panic.
